Pazhavangadi Ganapathy Temple




Pazhavangadi Ganapathy Temple, dedicated to Lord Ganapathy, is located at East Fort in Thiruvananthapuram. Deities of Goddess Durga, Lord Ayyappa and Nagaraja are also found in the temple complex. Pazhavangadi Mahaganapathy idol is entirely different from other Ganesh idols, as the right leg is in folded posture.

Breaking of coconut is the main nivedyam (offering) at the temple. The rituals conducted are nityanidaanam, masavisesham, and attaviseshams. A bhajana mandapam is also attached.

The famous Padmanabhaswamy Temple is at a walking distance. Sree Maha Ganapathy Temple is 1 km southwest of Thiruvananthapuram Central Railway Station and Thiruvananthapuram Central Bus Station, and 8 km east of Trivandrum International Airport.
