TRICHAMBARAM KRISHNA TEMPLE

Once, the story goes, a wealthy Muslim who purchased a beautiful elephant decided to conduct a test and also exhibit his valor.  Against the advice of everyone he mounted the elephant and took it near the temple on the eastern side.  Lo I suddenly the doors of the sanctum which were closed opened and a thunder was heard.  The elephant's front legs bent and it fell down throwing off the mahout.  He realized the power of the Lord, repented his action and made amends by making offerings.

Of Great Antiquity

The temple we see today at  richambararn is the one, which had undergone extensive renovation, and Tipu Sultan subjected reconstruction after it to spoliation and desecration during his invasion of several temples in Kerala.  Many important temples like this underwent repairs and reconstruction between the close of the eighteenth century and the beginning of the nineteenth century.
