Thayankavu Sastha Temple, Thrissur

The Thayankavu Sastha Temple, located at Choondal in Thrissur district, Kerala, is one of the few temples where Lord Ayyappa is seated along with his wife and son. Another intriguing feature here is that the komaram [oracle] of this temple never wears the Chilambu (an ankle ornament) or the Aramani (a waist ornament). Instead, he holds Pattu and Churika (a knife-like weapon). The ritual of Thiruvonam Oottu (feast) conducted in the month of Thulam (mid-October – mid-November) is an important function here.
