Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat on Tuesday offered prayers at the famous Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple here, official sources said.
The RSS chief reached the shrine, where Lord Vishnu in a reclining 'Anantha Sayanam' posture is the presiding deity, at 6.40 am, the sources said.
Bhagwat, who has been in Kerala since October 7, arrived in the state for a meeting of the RSS' all India leaders, the sources said.
One of the most prominent temples dedicated to Lord Vishnu in the region, the centuries-old shrine shot into the limelight some time ago with the unearthing of a staggering wealth, including a stunning range of articles, comprising gold ornaments, idols engraved with precious stones, jewels, heaps of solid gold coins and silver and gold platters and lamps, from its cellars.
