THE VADAKKUNNATHAN TEMPLE

Associated with Adi Sankara

The presence of the Sankha and Chakra in the precincts of the temple are signs of association of Adi Sankaracharya (788-820 A.D.) and indicates how ancient the temple is. According to log end the parents of Adi Sankara came to Trichur and observed bhajan   for 41 days and as a result Vadakkunnathan was born to them as Sankara. Adi Sankara himself, after his earthly mission, is said to have shed his mortal body here. Apart from establishing Mutts in different comers of India he is said to have founded, four Mutts at   Trichur itself viz. Vadakke Matham, Natuvil Matham, Edayil Matham and Tekke Matham. All this strengthens the belief that Vadakkunnathan: temple was famous even before the 9th century.
