Followers believe that the Lord has personally come in disguise and had saved many times the Travancore Kingdom from the clutches of enemies. Recently Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple was in news for the discovery of hidden treasure worth billions of dollars which also underlined it as a must-visit attraction in Kerala.

According to traditions, Sree Padmanabhaswamy Kshetram is believed to have been worshipped by Chandra (Moon God) and Lord Indra (the head of the Devas). The idol of Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple is made up of 12008 salagramams that are from Nepal, from the banks of river Gandhaki. The followers believe that the Lord Mahavishnu has personally come in disguise and had saved the Travancore Kingdom many times from the clutches of enemies.
