AUTHOR'S PREFACE

As the author of books on two of the most prominent temples of Kerala-Sri Krishna, The Lord of Guruvayur and Pilgrimage to Sabari-which were fortunately well received by the public, the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan thought I would be the natural choice for the series on temples which they are bringing out for different States. While I am grateful to the Bhavan for entrusting me with this noble task, I however found that the work involved was stupendous.

There are nearly 1,300 temples under the management of the TravancoreDevaswom Board, alone which controls temples in the erstwhile Travancore State. Similarly the Cochin Devaswom Board has nearly 400 temples in its jurisdiction in the former Cochin State. Then comesMalabar, which too has hundreds of temples.
