SRI SUBRAHMANYASWAMY TEMPLE - HARIPAD

This popular Subrahmanya swamy temple located very close to the Cengannur temple is the most reputed Murugan temple in Kerala. And the eldest too. According to legend this icon was adored ardently by Parasuram. So it bears many vestiges of his magnetic touch. It is one of the biggest temples possessing the beautiful image of Lord Subrahmanya, with four hands.

It was built under strange circumstances imbued with mystery. It has many plus points like the celebration of boat race, deemed a great national festival, when the enthusiasm of the people reach the apex; performance of Kavadiyattam etc., to speak a few. It came into existence owing to a strange dream of a virtuous Bhakta. It so happened that a pious devotee dream one day that a beautiful icon was lying on a river-bed and it had to be installed in a temple with agamic rituals soon. On waking up, he informed the strange news to the elders. The astrologer and scholar delighted at it, at once set out in search of it. Enchanted by its scantily, they consecrated it in a temple fitting to its stature, and sanctity.

Later many festivals common to Murugan temples were introduced. Avani, Chitra, Karthik, Tai, Dhanu masas the temple at is best with gaiety and piety reaching the zenith.
