Inscriptions from the 10th to the 13th century are found in the Vamanamoorthy temple at Thrikkakara, near Ernakulam. This is the only temple dedicated to Vamana - one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu - who in the guise of a Brahmin boy ended the glorious rule of King Mahabali. Thrikkakara is considered to be the capital of Mahabali’s Kingdom and the ten-day Onam celebration is flagged off from this temple with a colourful pageant.
