Author's Preface

It would be humanly impossible, even if one devoted one's entire lifetime, to cover all these numerous temples each claiming some importance or other. It will not be possible to do justice even to all the major temples. The author was, therefore, compelled to confine his narratives to a few of the better-known temples, the selection being of course very difficult. Even if those included in this work created awareness among the devout of the rich heritage of temples that belongs to Kerala I would feel my labours amply rewarded.

The following books provided me with good reference material: Mahakshetrangalku Mumpil and Kshetrapradakshinam by Nalamkel Krishna Pillai and published by Sahitya Pravarthaka Co-operative Society, Kottayam; Eithihyamala by Kottarathil Sankunni, published by Kottarathil Sankunni Memorial Committee, Kottayam; A Survey of Kerala History by A. Sreedhara Menon (Sahitya Pravarthaka Co-operative Society); A Short History of Kerala by Prof. K. V. Krishna Ayyar, The Arts and Crafts of Kerala, both published by Paico Publishing House.
