4.6/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web
One of the seven royal temples of Kochi KIngdom, Ernakulatthappan Temple differs from most Shiva shrines in one major characteristic--its idol faces west. Diwan Sri Edakkunni Sankara Warrier is responsible for its current appearance--which it gained in 1846--though the original shrine dates back at least as far as the 3rd century. The temple’s most praised possessions are two lingams, the origins of which are deeply rooted in the town’s history and the ancient Sanskrit epic Mahabharata. Notice a golden pole used for hoisting of the temple flag at the opening of the temple festival in December.

  • Visited this ancient temple of Lord Shiva is slightly away from the promenade of Kochi. The current Temple was built 600 years ago, next to a park, a very pleasant atmosphere and tranquility near the Temple of Hanuman.
