“Well maintained temple”

Vadakkunnathan Temple
Ranked #1 of 67 things to do in Thrissur
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I visited this temple yesterday evening. It was clean, well maintained and massive. The architecture is uniquely keralite and provision for lamps to be lit through the temple.
The temple has massive walls and is an oasis of calm in the middle of the town. It was raining and it added to the attractiveness of the temple.
One flip side is walking around the temple leads to pain due to the small pebbles (stones) around the walkways. Also, the way the prasad was denied was surprising despite it being available in huge quantities and and our willingness to pay for the same.
The added advantage of visiting Thrissur is the plentiful availability of chips deep fried in coconut oil and tastes wonderful!

Its a part of life for a thrissurian, to circle the city round junction once. Thrissur is known for that big circle ground, which carriers the stories of a life time.

Temple and the famous Thrissur pooram, who in thrissur hasn't enjoyed this at least once.

Get to know about this place, before you pay a visit. It adds value to your journey.

Went to Vadakkunnathan Temple in Thrichur very recently. Earlier went to the Pooram festival there and this is the second visit after that. The huge temple and the calmness will automatically bring the silence in you.

Thrissur town is literally around this temple. This is a Shiva Temple and the ground around the temple is where the famous thrissur pooram happens every year. One can enter through the east and west gopuras. North and South are closed for public.
