Thirunelly Temple, Wayanad

Surrounded by the Kambamala, Karimala and the Varadiga Peaks, the Thirunelly Temple embodies classical, traditional Kerala architecture. A famous pilgrim centre, this temple, which is dedicated to Lord Vishnu - the god who maintains life - attracts hordes of devotees especially for performing ancestral rites. The shrine is shielded with 30 granite columns and the ground is paved with huge square pieces of granite.

Snuggled among mountains and forests, this riverside temple is close to the mountain spring, Papanashini. A ritual dip in its crystal clear waters is believed to wash away one’s worldly sins.
