Temples of Kerala

Triprayar, Tiruvangadu and Tiruvilvamala constitute three of the best known temples dedicated to Rama in Kerala. There is a quartet of four temples dedicated to Vishnu - in the form of the four heroic brothers Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Satrugna - all four of these temples being part of a common legend.

(Also see temples associated with the Mahabharata in Kerala and temples glorified by the hymns of the Tamil Alwars in Kerala).

The Triprayar Rama temple rich in legend and architecture is considered to be one of the 4 temples dedicated to Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Satrugna. The Sangameswara temple at Irinjalakuda near Thrissur is a one of a kind temple dedicated to Bharata the brother of Rama. The Lakshmana Perumal temple at Moozhikkalam is dedicated to Lakshmana, brother of Rama and has been venerated by the Tamil hymns of the Alwar saints.
The twin (hill) temple complex at Tiruvilvamala in Northern Kerala bears shrines to Rama and Lakshmana.   The Tiruvangad Rama temple at Telicheri in Northern Kerala is rich in legend and has ancient inscriptions and murals.
