TRICHAMBARAM KRISHNA TEMPLE

A Bit of History

According to the Mushakavamsa, a historical mahakavya in Sanskrit composed by Atula, which narrates the history of Mushaka kingdom till the 11th century A.D., King vallabha II is credited with having renovated the Vishnu temple at Trichambaram.  This indicates that the temple had been in existence much earlier than the 11th century A.D.

Incidentlly, Mushaka country (which later came to be known as Kolathunad, North Malabar, ruled by Kolattiris, had been ruled by illustrious kings like Vikrama Rama, Jayamani, Valabha II and Srikantha.  It was Vikrama Rama who saved the famous shrine of Sri Mulavasam, the famous Buddhist shrine, from the havoc of sea erosion.
