TRISSUR - VADAKKUNATHAN AMBALAM

The Temple Complex

This supremely unique, chronologically ancient and spiritually important Vadakkunathan holy shime lies atopa hillock called Vrishabhachala, occupying about nine acres of land. Its massive stone walls serving as strong fortification are adorned with four tall towers, and contains in their spacious sprawling ground a cluster of shrines and scores of aswartha vrikshas. As we enter, crossing the western portal, a vast courtyard encircling the graciously built imposing shrines greets the eyes. A remarkable graceful theatre hall beautified by a slopping of metal plated roof of Kuttambalam beckons our attention and detains us with its imposing dimensions and colourful mural paintings. It is the biggest of its kind, the Kerala temples boast of, and is deemed the neucleus of Chakiyarkuttu - a highly developed and greatly praised firm of dramatic art. This playhouse, where performance of all types of dance dramas, like Kathakali, Mohini Attam are being staged over years, is fittingly decorated with wooden panels and architectural marvels. This majestic structure has an exciting glory imbued with divinity. The very building of it has a legend.
