In between these two srikoils lies the circular two-storeyed srikoil
dedicated to Sri Sankaranarayana facing- the West. Mural paintings adorning the
walls is a novelty of this srikoil. They are quite enchanting and narrate many
episodes from the Mahabharata. Panchagavaya abhishekam is offered to this deity.
These three shrines have spacious Mukhamandapams.
As the very air is surcharged
with the presence of divinities and chants of the priests, it transports every
visitor to celestial world for a time. Before leaving these principal srikoils,
the devotes fail not visiting the Ganapathi shrine lying between Vadakkunathan
and Sankaranarayana srikoils.
The charming image besides tilling the eyes with
its diminutive beauty, fills the bellies with sweet appams as prasadam to the
visitors. The Kshetra Palaka of this temple called Vettukkorumakan is installed
in a niche in the northern nalambalam. Some Upadevathas arc found fixed along
the 7- foot wide Pradarkshanamarga - the circumambulatory path.
