Significance of Ananthapadmanabha Swamy Temple:
The temple is known as the moolasthanam, the original source, of the Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swamy Temple of Thiruvananthapuram.
In the sanctum sanctorum, of the temple, Sri Anantha Padbhanabha is depicted as seated on the divine serpent Anantha, while in the Sri Padmanabha Swamy Temple of Thiruvananthapuram, the Lord is reclining on Anantha.
The lake is blessed with perennial spring water all year the round and the water is considered very sacred. Further, the main idol of Vishnu is not made of up of any stone or metal but a unique combination of 70 materials of medicinal importance which is identified as kadu-sharkara-yogam.
Another rare feature is that the temple is guarded by a crocodile called Babia. It is vegetarian in nature and does not even harm the fishes which stay in the same lake. It only eats the food given by the temple priests and at a time only one single crocodile survives in the lake
Lord Vishnu along with 5 headed serpents is found in this temple. It is believed that he grants wishes to all his devotees who religiously worship him.
Legend of the temple:
It is believed that there lived a Rishi by the name Vilwamangalam in Divakara. He used to perform lots of pujas and rituals on a daily basis. One day Lord Narayan decided to take the form of a small child and appeared in front of him. He was unknown of this fact and thought of the child as a homeless orphan. He offered to provide him shelter to which the child agreed. But the child also laid the condition that any day he felt a slight glitch of humiliation he would leave him immediately. The child stayed for certain duration.
However, with time, Vilwamangalam found the jokes and juvenile nature of the child irritating and he once scolded him. He disappeared after this event announcing the fact that if he ever wanted to see him again he would have to search him in Ananthankat forest. Soon the Rishi realized that it was Lord Narayana and went to the forest in search of the child. He found him near a cave, however, the child disappeared and immediately an idol of Lord Vishnu along with 1000 headed serpent appeared.
