HARIPAD - SUBRAHMANYA SWAMY TEMPLE

This Subrahmanyaswamy temple is one of the oldest of Kerala temples. According to legend this icon was adored ardently by Parasuram. So it bears many vestiges of his magnetic touch. Moreover, it is one of the biggest temples possessing the beautiful image of Lord Subrahmanya, with four. hands.

It was built under strange circumstances, imbued with mystery. It has many plus points like the celebration of boat-race, deemed a great national festival, when the enthusiasm of the people reach the apex performance of Kavadiyattam etc., to speak a few. It came into existence owing to a strange dream of a virtuous Bhaktas. It so happened that a pious devotee dreamt one day that a beautiful icon was lying on a river-bed and it had to be installed in a temple with agamic rituals soon. On waking up, he informed this strange news to the elders. The astrologers and scholars delighted at it, and at once set out in search of it. Enchanted by its beauty coupled with sanctity, they consecrated it in a temple fitting to its stature and sanctity.

Later many festivals common to Murugan temples were introduced. Avani, Chitra, Karthikai, Thai, Dhanurmasas see the temple at it the best with gaiety and piety reaching the zenith.

It is located very close to 'the Chengannur temple in Kerala, accessible by bus.
