A must-visit not only for the devout, but also for those interested in history and culture, Ambalapuzha Sri Krishna Temple is one of the most renowned Kerala temples. It is believed to have been built during the 15th-17th century AD. It is revered by the Hindus in Kerala. During Tipu Sultan’s raids of north Kerala in 1789 AD, the idol from the Guruvayoor Temple was brought here for safekeeping.
The annual Ambalapuzha Temple Festival (established during the 15th century) is its highlight. It commemorates the time when Ambalapuzha’s ruling dynasty decided that their temple needed an idol of the Lord Krishna. Brought from the hilly Karinkulam Temple in the form of Parthasarthi, the holy idol holds a whip in the right hand and a ‘sankhu,’ a sacred conch shell, in the left. The temple is famous for its ‘pal-payasam,’ a sweet pudding made from rice and milk that is as blissful to the casual visitor’s taste buds as a sight of the Lord is to his devotee’s soul.
