  • This Siva temple is famous alongside Ettumanoor and Kaduthuruthy (Thaliyil) as it is believed to be auspicious if one visits all three temples successively within the same day (also referred to in malayalam as sivaalaya ottam). Lovely premises with car parking available (pay and park: cheap rate) very close by.
  • The famous festival is Vikkathashtami conducted in every year on Vrichika masam(Nov-Dec) of malayalam calendar...
  •  One of the main pilgrim centres of the south. Famous for the Vaikkath Asthami celebrations in November/December, it is one of the few temples which is held in reverence by both Shaivaites and the Vaishnavaites. Vaikkom’s Shiva is fondly called Vaikkathappan. 
  • Very nice place could have been more pleasent if given a chance to see the main diety. Just not lucky this time.
  • We visited Vaikom Mahadeva Temple on the way to Athirapally waterfalls. Not so crowded and it was a pleasant visit. It is one of oldest temple in Kerala.
