It is this jubilant Krishna after
the killing of Kamsa that is depicted in all its splendour at Trichambaram.
It is about two-km. Northeast of the Taliparamba Siva
Temple. Devotees, especially those coming from outside, generally visit this temple
also after worshipping Rajarajeswara at Taliparamba. This incidentally shows that even in
the old days people in Kerala did not differentiate between Siva and Vishnu and they
worshipped both deities with the same fervor.
According to legend, the place was once a big forest called
Sambaravanam or Sambara forest. There was one Sambara Maharshi here, who by
practising tapas for several years and propitiating Mahavishnu attained onneness with the
God. Henceforth people felt the divine presence here and their devotion and faith
gradually gave shape to a temple.
