AMBAZHAPUZHA KRISHNA

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

It emanated from the peepal tree now found within the Prakara of the famous temple, built by the ardent Krishnabhakta Thampuran later. This holy spot embodies several uniques besides this peepal tree. It is for this temple the archamurthi was brought from the Thekkumkoor during the night for avoiding blood shed; it is to this temple the august Mulavirat of Guruvayur was brought for safety during the invasion of Tippu in 1790; it is this deity who has great preference for palpayasam more than the devotees; it is here the Lord used to feed with his own hands the Marars - the traditional instrumentalists in the role of server; it is here the much hallowed Pallipana and Vijyabali festivals conducted, and it is here the archamurthi is worshipped as Unnikrishna, though it resembles Parthasarathi with a whip in his right hand and Sankha in the left.

Embodying several such unique features, enjoying the privilege of ruling a kingdom; conscreted by the holy sage, adored by devout rulers, eulogised in devotional literature, this holy kshetra has been attracting devotees for five centuries now.
