TRICHAMBARAM KRISHNA TEMPLE

It is not known whether the temple came into existence in Dwaparayuga or Kaliyuga. There is a general belief that this Vishnu temple was built soon after the Siva temple at Taliparamba in order to temper the fierceness of Siva.

As in the case of several other temples in Kerala, Parasurama is also credited with the construction of this temple.  When he came to Trichambaram he had the wonderful vision of the Lord after annihilating Kamsa -probably the same vision which Sambara Maharshi had earlier. After constructing the temple Parasurama laid down the pooja routine and stipulated the different festivals to be observed in the temple.
