Painguni Festival at Sreepadmanabha Swamy Temple



The idol of Bhiman showing intricate works



The major attractions of the Painguni festival of Sreepadmanabha Swamy temple here are the display of huge idols of Pandavas, in the front of the temple and the aarattu by the Maharaja of Travancore as the concluding rite.  As children we used to visit temple during these times, to have a look at the Bhima. Bhima to our little minds was the strongest, but here Dharmaputra is the biggest idol. The idols are crafted beautifully and retain their pristine look.
