Jagathy Sree Krishna Temple



Sree Krishna Temple is a highly revered shrine situated at Jagathy between Vazhuthacaud and Edapazhanji in Thiruvananthapuram. The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Krishna. There are sub shrines and niches dedicated to Ganesh, Shiva, Ayyappa, Nagaraja and the Navagraha.

The temple was earlier managed by Koopakara Pottis, who constitute one of the Ettara yogam, the traditional custodians of the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple. One of the pillars of the Mukhamandapa, in front of the sanctum sanctorum has a sculpted relief of an unidentified ruler of Travancore standing with folded hands.

Janmashtami is celebrated every year, which is attended by devotees from all parts of the city.
