About Sringapuram Siva Temple, Thrissur

Sringapuram Mahadeva Temple, (Malayalam: ശൃംഗപുരം മഹാദേവക്ഷേത്രം) is located at Kodungallur in Thrissur District and is about 2 km from Kodungallur Bhagavati Temple. The temple adjoins the Kodungallur Kovilakam palace. The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Shiva. The temple is one of the 108 Siva Temples of Pracheena Keralam.

The temple faces towards east. There is a 3-bay Nadapandal with tiled roof, beyond which is the Dhwajastambha (flag post). The inner prakaram(outer courtyard) is entered through the agramandapa housing the valiya balikkallu. It is enclosed on three sides by wooden slats fixed on vertical wooden frames. In front of the square dvi-tala structured Shrikovil(sanctum), lays the Mukha Mandapam, which has two other doors on its south and north with granite steps and handrails. The Sopanam on the east has hasti-hastha banisters on its sides with the figure of a vyali sculptured on the outer sides.

The temple contains five pratisthas of Shiva Linga, a pattern of Shiva temples in vogue during ninth and tenth centuries. The image of Lord Shiva is believed to be in the penitent mood after the immolation of Sati (Lord’s consort) during the Dakshayaga. The temple has several inscriptions of 10th to 12th centuries.

The temple celebrates its annual eight-day festival in February or March with Arattu on the new moon day after Shivratri.
The temple can be approached by road and is on the Kodungallur- Paravur road (NH 17).
