IntroductionAuthor - K.R.Vaidyananthan
"Kerala," it is rightly said, "is a land of temples as it is a land of hills, backwaters and spices." It is not possible, even if one devotes one's lifetime, to do full justice to all the temples of this land. Hence only a few selected temples could be included for detailed narration in the foregoing chapters. An attempt is made here to make a quick survey of some more temples : by rapid circumambulation, or ottapradakshinam, as they say in Kerala.
