Surya Kaladi Mana Timings, History, Puja

Structured by Lord Parasurama, Suryakaladi Mana is an ancient abode of Lord Vighneswara. This palatial building built as an offering by King Swathi Thirunal finds frequent references in the history, Literature and Vedic concepts of Kerala. It is known that in a shrine in the eastern side of the Surya Kalady Mana sits Sri Maha Ganapathy giving all prosperities to and removing all hurdles of this family. Differing from the normal shape here, Ganapathy sits with ten hands and his wife ‘Vibhodhi’. The Ganapathy in this temple has daily poojas and Ganapathy Homam etc in a different method and secrecy which is very holy and rare. Sree Chakram and Sooryan (sun) are the sub deities.

Surya Kaladi Mana Timings:

Morning: 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM
Evening: 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Surya Kaladi Mana History:

The ancient scholar of this family should be remembered for the origin of the name Surya Kalady connecting to the Surya (Sun). The eminent and efficient scholar in Manthra thanthras (rituals) prayed God sun and studied ‘Mathra Vidya’ from him and persuaded his name Surya to be with ‘Kaladimana’ always, thus the name reformed to ‘Suryakaladi Mana’. Every day this scholar is respected with poojas and considered as ‘Brahma rakshas Moorthy’. Thiruvitharnkoor Devaswam Board gives Palpayasam Nivedyam to this idol every day.
