Not really much to see other than the locals rituals to their gods and a sad chained elephant. Guys well have to take their top off as it's compulsory to be bear chested to get inside the inner part of the temple. Girls will need to cover legs.

A typical Kerala-style heritage temple. Unfortunately we missed out on the famous Pal Payasam. Quite some distance from the center.

It is a must visit for every Hindus. But the most famous thing is the ambalpuzha pal payasam which tastes so good.

Each Hindu should visit the temple. Beacutiful Krishna temple.The idol at Ambalapuzha is likened to Parthasarthi with a whip in the right hand and a Shankhu (sacred conch) in the left.
