The Thiruvambady Krishna Temple is a spiritual haven for the devotees of Lord Krishna. Dating back to many centuries, this temple has maintained its popularity through many local legends and stories. It is situated close to the Swaraj Round and is open from 5 AM to 11 AM and 5 PM to 8.30 PM.
It is one of the two rival temples, most well-known for its participation in the Thrissur Pooram Festival representing the two divisions of Thrissur in the principal Pooram in the state of Kerala. They carry forward a legacy initiated by one of the founding fathers of the city over 200 years ago.
The spectacular show of gold-bedecked elephants and the elaborate show of fireworks has earned it the description of being “the most spectacular festival event on the planet” by UNESCO. This festival can fall anywhere between April and May and if you are willing to bear with the hot and humid weather, this is an experience that will make it worth it.
