Trichambaram Sree Krishna Temple is located in Taliparamba of Kannur District in the state of Kerala in south India. The main deity of this temple is Sree Krishna after the Kamsavadham . It is believed by the Hindu religious scholars and pundits not to worship the Lord during dawn because in Raudra style (ferocious) Trichambaram Sreekrishna sits. It is to be noted that the Bali bimbam in the shrine is of Child Krishna. The local legends believe that the idol of the Lord was installed by Parasurama and he suggested the poojas, rituals, homams and festival styles.
In this temple, the popular saint Sambaran has conducted ‘Thapassu'(meditation) and thus the name coined ‘Trichambaram’ came to this shrine. It is to be remembered that the annual temple festival (Utsavam) is conducted in a colourful and grand manner with active participation of local residents, devotees and pilgrims. On Kumbham 22 (March 6) every year, the fortnight-long festival begins with the hoisting of a flag (kodiyettam ) and ends on Meenam 6 (March 20) with ending of this festival marked by Koodipiriyal.
