DESTINATIONS DETAILS

This temple is one among the one hundred and eight temples and is located near Thrissur city. There are two entrances to the inner prakara, where we see two majestic sanctums – one square and another circular in traditional Kerala architecture and having two-storied granite base. In both, Lord Siva is consecrated with equal significance and is facing west with Siva lingas almost 5-6 feet tall. Lord Siva is considered to be consecrated in ferocious form (Tripura Dahana). The entire surrounding of the inner prakara is paved with granite. The circular Sreekovil has a namaskara mandapa with very old, but disintegrating wood work in its inner roof. Lord Ganapathy and Goddess Parvathi are also consecrated in the circular sanctum. In the middle of the two sanctums, there is a very old well in ‘Kokkarni’ style which has steps to go down whose water is used for all the temple rituals. Outer-prakara has sub-shrine of Lord Ayyappa and Nagas.
