The offering of Brinjal Naivedyam is a distinctive feature of this temple. And it has an interesting background. Once a devout aged bhakta suffered from stomachache for years. Expert doctors in the best hospitals too left him in lurch, saying incurable. Advised by an ardent devotee, he reached this temple and participated in Bhajans, observing austerities. He worshipped the Lord soulfully for some days. Will this Lord also let him down? Certainly not! He appeared before him in a dream and advised him to prepare Brinjal Naivedyam with 101 brinjals and offer it to him. He did. And lo! his acute and much - agonising pain disappeared like himabindu at the touch of the first ray of Balabhaskara. Since then it is highly petferred for curing the ailments, and moreover regarded as a special item of offering to the deity.

Tiruvonam falling in the month of August-September lasting for 11 days is an important annual festival, when the newly harvested rice is cooked and offered to the Lord. Mukkidi- a special prasad - a sure cure for several ailments is distributed then. Thousands participate and receive it. Medom, another festival celebrated in April-May offers a pageant-colour, sound and light, and delights one and all. The elephant procession being the star attraction has a great pull then. Thousands participate in it gaily every year.

Visiting of this unique of uniques will remain unique in life. Visit and avail profit!

Location :The temple lies in Irinjalakuda, accessible by four wheelers from Trichur, Kerala.
