Vadakkumnathan Temple In Kerala

This Shiva temple boasts of being built by none other than the creator of Kerala state itself, Parsurama.

Another feather in the cap of this temple is that it is one of the largest temples in the state, spreading across in an area of 10 acres. The renovation work on the original structure was done by Shakhthan Thampuran, a faithful devotee of Lord Shiva.

There are images of Ayyappa and Lord Rama along with Shiva here. Adi Shankaracharya is believed to have spent his last days in this temple. A unique feature of this temple is that the Mahalingam of Shiva is never visible since it is covered in huge mound of ghee which is as high as 11 feet.

A portion of mound is considered around 1000 years old, still there is no stench emitting from it. This is despite Kerala's warm climate. Visit the temple which is located in the downtown Thrissur. The festival of Thrissur Pooram is also an attraction here.
