ANNADANA PRABHU OF VAIKOM

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

THE TEMPLE

This sacred shrine facing east occupies an extensive area of eight acres. It is surrounded by a massive parakara with four gates and modest towers over them. Though they are neither tall, nor impressive with sculptural adornments, they heighten the sanctity. The Srikoil is circular in shape and ,is quite majestic and awe-inspiring. It has a cone shaped roof covered with copper plates, and is adorned by a dazzling gold Kalasa.

Its inner walls decorated with wooden panels and mural paintings offer rich fare to the connoisseurs of art by their superb artistry; and memorable episodes from puranas to the asthikas. It is as praised, a specimen of the indigenous style of architecture of the 16th century. The circular structure, a Kerala special, casts an enchantment to the outsiders and turns out a topic of discussion of eternal interest.
