Thrissur (trichur) Travel Guide

With its many institutes, temples and the flamboyant Pooram festival, Thrissur is Kerala’s capital city of culture and also a popular pilgrimage destination. Tucked away from the sea, Thrissur is situated in central Kerala. The Vadakkunnathan Temple dominates the landscape of this pilgrim centre. Thrissur is actually built around the hill (locally called Round) that this temple to Shiva is on. Though dedicated predominantly to Shiva, there are some shrines to Vishnu and a Jain saint. Open to non-Hindus only during Pooram, this temple is renowned for it’s richly carved timber roofs and the elaborate murals inside.

Visit the city in the months of April and May as the famous Thrissur Pooram Festival is celebrated with full vigour and enthusiasm. The sight of elephant’s carrying out processions around the temples with the image of deity is not to be missed.
