A TEMPLE FOR BHARATA

Irinjalakuda town is 8 Km. from Irinjalakuda railway station on the Trichur-Ernakulam line of the Southern Railway.  A road from the bus stand leads you directly to the massive eastern gateway.  It is an impressive structure embedded with numerous carvings.

Artistic Excellence

Entering inside, on either side of the walls there are beautiful murals.  As you turn to the left there is the well-known kuttambalam.  The entire northern side is covered by the temple tank-Kulipini tirtham.

The srikoil is circular in shape with copper-plated roof and a golden tazhikakudam at the pinnacle.  The Wood carvings and granite friezes on the outerwalls are of high artistic excellence.
