For  knowing the history , we have to travel back to 8 th century.  Sree padamanbhaswamy temple is one among the 108 sacred vishnu temples in india.

Veera Marthandavarma , a travencore ruler did  major renovation works, and the temple had got the present style. Marthandavarma dedicated his kingdom to Padmanabhaswamy  in 1750. He pledged that , with the support of Padmanabhaswamy, the royal family will rule the travancore . After this onwards , the travancore rulers ,had  ruled their kingdom as padmanabhswamy  Dasa( servant of Padmanabhswamy). Now Uthradom Thirunnal Marthanda Varama  is being  the head of royal family.
