Situated in Thrissur’s Thriprayar, the idol of Lord Rama, also endearingly known as Thriprayarappan or Thriprayar Thevar has four arms bearing a conch, a disc, a bow and a garland. The temple architecture is rich with wood carvings, mural paintings and sculptures representing various scenes from the epic The Ramayana. Meenootu or feeding fish is a unique offering at the temple. Located at a distance of 22km from Thrissur town, the temple is easily accessible.
Thriprayar Thevar is also the presiding deity of the Devamela, the oldest temple festival in the Indian subcontinent, also known as the Arattupuzha Pooram. The golden thazhikakudam, conical copper roof of the sanctum and the copper-plated namaskara mandapam are also worth mentioning. The temple is one among the ‘Naalambalam’, each dedicated to the four brothers with Rama at Thriprayar, Bharata at Koodalmanikyam, Lakshmana at Thirumoozhikkulam and Shatrughnan at Payammel.
