Located in Alappuzha, its distinctive architecture and artistic vividness are what attracts devotees to this temple. It is one of the rare temple complexes in Kerala, where two temple sanctum sanctorum are situated within a single Nalambalam (temple structure). One is dedicated to Lord Narasimha Moorthy and the other to Lord Maha Sudarsana Moorthy.
Its two santorum, two towering gold-plated flag masts, a majestic Anapandhal (a place where elephants stand during rituals) as well as unique festivals add to the overall mystique of the shrine.
The Sudarsana Moorthy Temple is believed to be 1300 years old. The one dedicated to Lord Narasimha is believed to have come into being sometime in the 7th century CE, during the reign of a Chera king named Keralendran.
