TRICHAMBARAM KRISHNA TEMPLE

These were the Siva temples at Tali, Tiruvannur, Trikkandiyoor, Tiruvanchikulam, Tirumittakkode, Trittala, Triparangode and Sukapuram; the Vishnu temples at Trichambaram and Tirunavayi and the Sri Rama temple at Tiruvangad, Triprayar and Tiruvilwamala, all of which have distinct architectural features.

According to Shri R. V. Poduval, the "Krishna temple at Trichambaram which abounds in 'excellent wood carvings, illustrating stories from the Bhagavata, is a splendid example of wise renovation.  Its  central shrine and the Mandapa in front are covered with two prasadas or storeys with a projecting gable to the front of the lower roof.   There are four projecting gables to the top pyramidal roof surmounted by a stupi.

The temple, according to Shri K. V. Soundara Rajan, author of Temple Architecture in Kerala, is an early one, dating in origin to ' the 10th-11th century, and that at least two major renovations have occurred.  These were completed in the 14th-15th and 17th-18th centuries.
The central shrine which faces east is perfectly square in plan and therefore of great antiquity.  This holy of holies, as Ronald Bernier describes, "holds a large image of Krishna carved of stone and hung with metal ornaments.  It can be seen in a halo of lights in the center of double-walled garbhagriha.
