Kanyakumari - THIRUVATTAR VISHNU TEMPLE (VIDEO) only this tourist place...

The Sri Adikesavaperumal Temple(Malayalam: ശ്രീ ആദികേശവപെരുമാള്‍ ക്ഷേത്രം) (THIRUVATTAR VISHNU TEMPLE) is a Hindu temple located in Thiruvattar, kanyakumari district and  it is one of the 108 Divya desams, the holy sites of Hindu Vaishnavism. The temple is a picturesque setting surrounded on three sides by rivers (River Kothai, River Pahrali and River Thamirabarani).

                                 The temple architecture is Kerala style architecture with wooden pillars, doors and roofs. The lord is lying on his snake couch and has to be viewed through three doors. We could see Lord Shiva near Lord Adikesava Perumal inside the sannidhi. Deepalakshmis are many but none resembles the other. The Otraikkal Mandapam (single stone hall) made of a single stone 3 feet thick, is a marvel. Oorthuva Thandavam, Venugopala, Rathi, Manmatha, Lakshmana and Indrajit are excellently carved. The temple is also renowned for its murals. 

                                              This Temple is older than the Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple at [[Thiruvananthapuram] and one of the divya devams. The style and the architecture of this temple has been taken as the sample to construct the Sri Padmanabhaswamy Temple at Thiruvananthapuram. Thiruvananthapuram Sri Anantha Padmanabhaswamy temple deity lies in the direction as to see the Thiruvattar Adi kesava deity. The main deity was originally covered with gold kavachams in which diamonds and other precious stones were embedded which the kerala kings had presented to the temple.There is also a small shrine for Lord Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy near the river and opposite to the Adikesavaperumal Temple. Nammalvar had sung 11 pasurams in praise of AdiKesavaSwamy.
