Thrikkuratti Mahadeva Temple

Thrikkuratti Mahadeva Temple, situated at Mannar on the banks of the Pamba River, is one of the famous 108 Sivalayas (Shiva Temple) built by Lord Parasurama. Mannar is a major business town, especially for Bell metal products and handicrafts, located mid way between 8 km north of Mavelikara and Tiruvalla. It is believed that the mammoth temple compound wall was built by a troupe of Bhoothas of Lord Paramasiva in one night. The antique wooden carving of the temple srikovil attracts lot of art lovers including foreigners. At a special Nada (gate) on the east side of the temple compound wall, other religious members, in particular, Muslims, present offerings on a daily basis. This practice is believed to be centuries old and is considered to be a true embodiment of religious harmony. The unique festivities of Thrikkuratti temple are Sahasra kalasam, Maikatti puja and Sivarathri Nritham. The Thrikkuratti Mahasivarathri Festival (only next to Aluva sivarathri in terms of mass congregation) and its well known procession with decorated floats, Kavadi aattam, Amman Kudom, Thaiyyam and cultural floats etc, attract thousands of devotees and tourists. The west nada (Parvathi) of the temple opens only once in a year for ten minutes during Sivarathri Nritham on Sivarathri day. The major daily offering of the temple is called Satha Kalasam. The srikovil (sanctum santorium) of the adjacent Mahavishnu temple is built in North Indian style of architecture.
