TRICHAMBARAM KRISHNA TEMPLE

Even today there is a custom during the temple festival when the dancer carrying the idol on his head dances before the tree and devotees keep a ring on a leaf and make obeisance.   The ring is available from the temple authorities for a token amount and many devotees observe the ritual hoping that the Lord would fulfil their desires as he did in the case of the man mentioned above.

Annual Festival

The annual festival at Trichambaram is in the month of March.  It starts with the flag-hoisting ceremony on 22 of the Malayalam month of Kumbha.  The same night the Balarama deity from Dharamkulangara (Mazhur) six km. away is brought in procession.   As already mentioned there is no elephant for the procession.  Priests who dance to the accompaniment of drums carry the images of both Krishna and Balarama on the head. The nrittam or dance takes place at night daily up to the 2nd of Meenam month at Pookothunada, a place on the main road about 2 furlongs from Trichambaram temple.
