Tripunithra - the sacred meeting place of the three Vedas - Rig. Yajur and Sama lying close to Ernakulam is treasuring up a great spiritual wealth in the form of Krishna temple, built as back as in the Dwaparayuga. The idol installed by Arjuna was brought from Vaikunta and so has great sanctity and popularity.  

According to legend, a pious Brahmin dashed into the court hall of Sri Krishna once and bewailed the loss of his nine children, who died one After another soon after birth. Every time his lamentation was loud and too deep for tars. Moreover, he was audacious to blame the ruler saying hat his sensuality and laxity in moral was the chief cause of all the woe beaten his lot. Arjuna, who was present, then promised that there would not be any recurrence of such misfortune and he would jump into fire, if the next child were to meet similar fate. The Brahmin went home. All the while Krishna smiled, but said nothing. 

But the untoward happened - the tenth child died. Arjuna prepared for Agnipravesa. Krishna intervening took him to Vaikuntha in his chariot. Welcoming them, the Lord of the Vaikunta said that in order to see Nara and Narayana both at a time, he created that situation - loss of 10 children.
