SRI VADAKKUNATHAN OF TRICHUR

 

The images Sankaranarayana, Vishnu, Siva and Parvathi now worshipped were materialised by his deep meditation and ardent veneration. It is in this temple precincts, Parasurama dwelt for sometime; it is here the presiding deity - Lord Vadakkunathan reveals himself in a three-metre-high-ghee mound; it is this temple that stands a classic example of Kerala Style, of architecture, renowned for many specialties; it is this temple's grand Koothambalam that displays exquisite pannel walls and mural paintings which alone worth an indispensable visit; it is this kshetram that thrills the visitors first with its incredible space and light surrounding garbhagrihas; it is this shrine that sprouted in the midst of Tekkinikadu in the beginning, and now but an oasis of peace; it is this temple's Pooram annual festival deemed the greatest pageantry matchless in spectacle of colour, glamour, sound and all-round grandeur; it is this city that enjoyed the reputation of the seat of administration of the rulers of Cochin; it is this recorded in the legends as the famous Vrishbhachala - the Kshetra of Nandikeswara, and it is this temple declared as a national monument by the Union Government.

Glorified by celestial connections; found by the incarnated divinity, hailed for several uniques; worshipped by millions of Saiva and Vaishnava and Sakteyas with equal fervour; patronised by the royal houses; eulogied by the connoisseurs of art; visited by god men, this Vadakkunatha kshetram is heightening the glory of Kerala, rather India, since the Tretayuga.
