Padmanabhaswamy Temple Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple is a Vishnu Temple located in Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala. The shrine is run by a trust headed by the Maharaja of Travancore.[1] Sree Moolam Thirunal Rama Varma is the titular Maharaja and Sree Revathi Thirunal Balagopal Varma, the titular Elayaraja. The temple is one of 108 Divya Desams (Holy Abodes of Vishnu) – principal centres of worship of the deity in Vaishnavism. Lord Balarama, according to Srimad Bhagavatam (10.79.18), visited Phalgunam (now known as Thiruvananthapuram) as part of his teerthyatra, took bath in Panchapsaras (Padmatirtham) and made a gift of ten thousand cows to holy men. The Principal Deity, Padmanabhaswamy, is enshrined in the "Anantha-sayanam" posture (in the eternal sleep of Yoga-nidra on the serpent Anantha).[4] The Maharajah of Travancore bears the title, "Sree Padmanabhadasa’ (Servant of Lord Padmanabha). Origins[edit] Ananthankadu Nagaraja Temple still exists to the north west of Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple.
