TRICHAMBARAM KRISHNA TEMPLE

There is a legend behind the practice of conducting nrittam at Pookothunada on the main road.  Years ago there were several Brahmin houses on either side of the road. Pookothunada was the courtyard of one of the houses called Pookathillam.  Here there lived a devout Nambudiri woman. Like Kururamma, before whom Guruvayurappan appeared at her bidding, the Lord of Trichambaram appeared before the woman at will.  The lady who never missed her visit to the temple and offering of butter to the Lord in course of time became so old and-sick that she could no longer pay any visit to the temple.
Her one regret, however, was that she could not witness the nrittam during the annual festival, which took place at the temple.
