Vishnu Ananthasayanam

Introduction:


This Vishnu Temple is in Tiruanantpuram, the capital city of Kerala, and has been named after his 1000-hooded serpent, Anant.


The temple gets the name Anantshayanam due to the idol’s reclined posture on Anant and the name Padmanabhan Swami due to a lotus emanating from the navel of Vishnu.


Besides being a key centre for Kathakali classical dance form, this place also has training centres for Karnatak music and Kalaripattu, the ancient martial art form of Kerala.


Tourists visit in large numbers for Ayurvedic therapy and training in Yoga.


The effective beginning of India’s space research programme began here when the Thumba Rocket Launching Station and Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre were established in 1962 and 1963 respectively.


The first techno-park in India was established here in 1995 and it is Asia’s third largest IT Park today.
