KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN KERALA

Ambalapudi - Janardhana Ambalam

In the twin temple complex of Janardhanaswamy and Mahakali,
there exists perfect equality between the most adorable Mahakali and the, much-venerated Janardhanaswamy, one of the 24 forms of Srimannarayana.'. Both the deities are enshrined in grandly built temple, possessing all the essential parts, like garbhagriha, dwajasthambha, mini-shrines etc., and is complete in itself. This holy kshetra and the shrine situated in the old Nidambur site was a creation by Jains, and with the emergence of the twin temples, its history changed, destiny mounted high under the new name
of Ambalapudi. The black granite icon of Janardhanaswamy in standing posture holding Sudarsana Chakra and Panchajanya gives darsan on entering the holy sanctum. It is quite enchanting and lifts the souls at once. It faces east, where as Mahakali's mandir faces west. The richly decorated Mahakali with her mighty weapons and hanging long tongue, though strikes terror, she is Karunaikasindhu raining boons on the deserving devotees. The nuni-shrines are enshrining the images of parivaradevathas, like, Hanuman, Ganapathi, Nagadevathas in befitting manner. Agamic daily worship is offered with great devotional fervour. Annual car festival is celebrated with pomp and splendour, when Mother Mahakali displays her infinite joy by dancing too.    

It lies about 10 km off Udipi of Karnataka, enjoying town bus facilities.
