This is the only temple in Kerala dedicated to Lord Bharata, the third brother of Lord Rama. Built-in typical Kerala architectural style, the temple features several delicate carvings. The eastern gateway (gopuram) is an impressive structure and is a protected monument of the Archaeological Department. The circular sanctum sanctorum is noted for its copper plate roof. Besides this, a six-foot thazhikakudom (finial) and Koothambalam (temple theatre) can also be viewed here.
Nalambala Darshanam, the annual pilgrimage of visiting the four shrines dedicated to Lord Sree Rama and his three brothers – Bharata, Lakshmana, and Sathrughna – is considered auspicious by the devotees. It is held in the Malayalam month of Karkidakam (mid-July – mid-August). The other three temples are the Triprayar Sree Rama Temple, Moozhikkulam Lakshmana Temple and Payammel Sathrughna Temple.
The temple is located at Irinjalakkuda in Thrissur district of Kerala.
