KUTALAMANIKYAM

 

TEMPLE

This temple is a typical example of Kerala ambalams. Its architectural style, from top to bottom springs many sup rises to the non-keralites. Though it has all the essential parts, like gopuram, prakara, girbhagriha, vimana, Kalasa, pradakshana path, vedika for Mulavirat etc; they are unlike their counter parts in places of worship found elsewhere in India. That is its specialty, and there lies its glory. This temple faces the East and has a massive Mahadwara. 

It is quite impressive with a large number of carvings. The Srikoil-girbhagriha is circular in shape and has a copper plated roof, adorned with a golden tazhikakudam atop, corresponding to the Kalasa. The outer walls beautified with granite friezes and wood carvings of excellent craftsmanship feasts the eye and delights the heart. The beautiful murals on either side of the walls detain the beholders for long and lift the souls. The holy Kulpini thirtham lies in the northern side and its masonry work is impressive.
