THE HISTORIC TALI TEMPLE

It is noteworthy that in the four centuries that Pattattanam flourished in Kerala hundreds of Sanskrit works of merit made their appearance and the credit should go to the Zamorin. As Shri K. V. Krishna Ayyar put it, if Guruvayur revealed the Zamorin's devotion, Tirunavayai his power and pomp, Tali Pattattanam exhibited his love of learning and respect for learned men.

Though Tali originally meant a Siva temple, there is a Krishna temple also here on the north-east side. Siva faces east and Krishna west. Both are independent temples with separate srikoils, nalambalams and flagstaffs. But the Siva shrine is very ancient and the Krishna temple appears to be a later addition.
