It is this jubilant Krishna after the killing of Kamsa that is depicted in all its splendour at Trichambaram.
It is about two-km. Northeast of the Taliparamba Siva Temple. Devotees, especially those coming from outside, generally visit this temple also after worshipping Rajarajeswara at Taliparamba. This incidentally shows that even in the old days people in Kerala did not differentiate between Siva and Vishnu and they worshipped both deities with the same fervor.
According to legend, the place was once a big forest called Sambaravanam or Sambara forest. There was one Sambara Maharshi here, who by practising tapas for several years and propitiating Mahavishnu attained onneness with the God. Henceforth people felt the divine presence here and their devotion and faith gradually gave shape to a temple.
