UNMELTABLE GHEE - VADAKKUNATHAN ANBALAM

Among the unique that the temple boasts, the archamurthis set up in all four main srikoils deserve first mention. The images Sankaranarayana, Vishnu, Siva and Parvathi now worshipped were materialized by his deep meditation and ardent veneration. It is in this temple precincts, Parasurama dwelt for some time; it is here the presiding deity - Lord Vadakkunathan reveals himself in a three - metre- high ghee mound; it is this temple that stands as a classic example of Kerala style of architecture. renowned for many excellences: it is this temple's grand Koothambalam that displays exquisite pannel walls and mural paintings which alone worth an indispensable visit; it is this kshetra that thrills the visitors first with its incredible space and light surrounding garbhagrihas; it is this shrine that sprouted in the midst of Tekkinikadu in the beginning, and now but an oasis of peace; it is this temple's Pooram annual festival deemed the greatest pageantry matchless in spectacles of colour, glamour, sound, above all - it is this city that enjoyed the reputation of the seat of administration of the rulers of Cochin; it is this recorded in the legends as the famous Vrishbachala-the Kshetra of Nandikeswara, and it is this temple declared as a national monument by the Union Government.

Location: The temple lies in Trissur, accessible by four wheelers from Palghat, Kerala.
