Sri Padmnanabha Swami Temple, the main land mark in Trivendram Page18

The Swami did not know the place. He went in search of it. On the way, he heard a mother chastising her crying baby that if it did not stop crying she would throw him away in Anantan Kadu (Kadu meaning forest). The sage enquired of the mother the route to Anantankadu and went there. As soon as he reached the place, he heard the crash of a big tree and there the Lord Vishnu was lying on a thousand - headed snake in a big form.

Annual Festivals

There are mainly two annual Utsavam at this temple-one in the month of Meenam (March-April) and the other in Thulam (September- October). Both are 10-day festivals with the inaugural flag-hoisting (Kodiyettam) ceremony on the first day, the Pallivetta (hunting) ceremony and procession on the 9th day and the arattu, the ritual bathing of the deities on the 10th day. On all these days, Within the temple, there are elaborate pujas and ceremonial Processions.
