Pazhavangadi Ganapathy Temple Reviews
An age old temple-has an aura about it which is to be experienced ! The temple is clean and tidy . Like all temples in Kerala one has to wear a dhoti/Mundu to go near the sanctum sanctorum. more »
Temple is now rebuild in a beautiful manner which makes the darshan and all easily and the space is really something which really makes you feel divine more »
One of the most popular temples in the city. Dedicated to Lord Ganesha. The temple's appearance is more similar to that of a North Indian temple. The disadvantage though is that its located in one of the busiest part of the city and hence its always crowded and there is noise everywhere. Hence one can't actually meditate very peacefully.
Very small but famous temple. Famous for breaking coconuts. There is a strong belief that if you break a coconut and ask for a wish it will fulfill soon.
