Triprayar Sreerama Temple in Thrissur is one of the popular Lord Rama temples in Kerala. The temple is noted for its magnificent festivals. The two major festivals celebrated are the annual Pooram Purappadu & Uthram Vilakku and Vrischika Ekadasi (Triprayar Ekadasi).
The festival begins with Kottippurappedal ritual. It is known as Pooram Purappadu. On the seventh day, the deity returns to the temple and will leave for the Arattupuzha Pooram. Triprayar Tevar is one of the participating deities of Arattupuzha Pooram.
The temple is considered the epicentre of Onam celebrations across Kerala.
Annually the church witnesses the participation of a large number of people from around the globe.
Thousands of devotees immersed in prayers carrying wooden crosses of different sizes and ambling up a hill; a whole village getting decked up and readying itself to welcome these pilgrims.
Once a year, the River Pamba gets enlivened as an elaborately decorated snake boat glides across its placid waters bearing the provisions for a grand feast
