Trichambaram Temple

A sacred place of the Vaishnava cult, the deity of the temple is Sree Krishna. It constitutes one of the trinity of temples held in high regard in the region, one being the Taliparamba Shiva temple and the other the Vaidyanatha temple. The Trichambaram Krishna temple is a small one, with a two storeied sanctum with four projecting gables on a pyramidal roof. The sanctum has beautiful carvings and murals from the 15th and 16th centuries. In the temple complex, is also a tank with a shrine to Durga in the center.

The sculptures on the walls of the sanctum sanctorum are in a class by themselves. The annual temple festival, usually held in March, is a colourful event. Festivities are held for ten nights in a row. On the final day of the festival, the scene of Balarama bidding farewell to his brother Krishna is enacted (in a manner similar to the Vaikom festival).

The temple is in Taliparamba village, about 14 kilometer from Pappinisserry railway station. The annual festival at this temple is celebrated in the malayalam month of Kumbham.
