THE VADAKKUNNATHAN TEMPLE

According to Shri A. Sreedhara Marion, author of A Survey of Kerala History, the Vadakkunnathan temple and the Karumba Bhagawati temple at Kodungallur were at one time Buddhist shrines. He also mentions about the three inscriptions found in the temple, which have been roughly assigned to 12th century A.D.

He writes: "Their historical value lies in the fact that they mention the Kattuvayiraveli Kacham which testifies to the ascendancy of the Nambudiri Brahmins who framed regulations regard to the rights of the tenants, menials etc. who were subordinate to the Vadakkunnathan temple. This is the only Kacham or agreement which contains provisions for -controlling the rights of the tenants-in Kerala."
