Thrikka Shiva Temple – Festival

Thrikka Shiva temple is located at Perumballoor South – Arakuzha in Ernakulam district, Kerala. The shrine is dedicated to Mahadeva – Shiva. The annual festival in the temple is Mahashivratri (in Kumbha Masam) – it falls on the last week of February or the first fortnight of March.

This is an old shrine and only the sreekovil remains that too is in a dilapidated condition. The shrine is located on the banks of Thodupuzha River.

The temple has a square sanctum or chathura sreekovil completely made out of granite. This must have been a huge temple in ancient times with all the essential structures.

The sreekovil still has numerous ornamental sculptures.
