Sreekanteshwaram temple, Trivandrum, Kerala

Sreekanteshwaram, is an ancient temple  right in the heart of the city.  This  is also very close to  Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swamy temple. The temple is quite  small, constructed in typical Kerala style and wood work here is artistically done  and visible in the images displayed below. This is visited by locals everyday.
Siva  is the main deity here and Lord Vishnu is also worshipped here.
The Sivalinga here, is believed to be a Swayambhu ( self manifestation) and there are sub shrines for Ganesha and Ayyapa.
