Small and Beautiful
Comparing Trichambaram temple with other temples in Kerala, Nalamkal states it is not as
big as the temples at Vaikom, Ettumanur, Haripad, Kutalmanikyam or even Taliparamba.
"If Taliparamba," he states, " is a lotus, Trichambaram is a
rose." It is small and beautiful. The temple does not also attract large and
continuous crowds like Guruvayur. Yet the local belief is that in olden days when
transport was not easily available and people could not visit Guruvayur easily, the Lord
came down at Trichambaram to bless them. And like Guruvayurappan, Trichambaresar
grants the desire of his devotees.
