Sri Padmnanabha Swami Temple, the main land mark in Trivendram Introduction

In our Younger days - and that was some fifty years ago - poor Brahmins who could not subsist themselves went to Trivandrum, the capital of the princely State of Travancore. Children who became orphans, women who became widows and destitute, all resorted to the temple of Lord Padmanabha, where thousands of Brahmins received two free meals a day.

Indeed, thanks to the munificence of the then Maharajas of Travancore, dozens of uttupuras, free feeding houses for Brahmins, were opened throughout the state. But the foremost 'among them was in the Padmanabhaswami temple which enabled many Brahmins to live free when they were getting an education or conducting a patty trade.
