About Temple

Chowalloor Shiva Temple is about 3 kms away from Guruvayur Sri Krishna temple. This temple though not too large, can definitely lay claim to be the most scenic temple in the vicinity of Guruvayur.
THE HISTORY OF THE TEMPLE
Lord Siva, the deity of Thrissur Sree Vadakunnatha Temple is said to have manifested Himself on an umberella carried by one of His beloved devotees, a pious old Namboothiri from Chowalloor Mazhavannoor Mana (lllam of Namboothiri), who used to walk all the way to Thrissur to have daily darshan of the Lord.
When His devotee became too old to walk and worship Him regularly, the Lord is said to have accompanied him to his native home in Chowalloor. Later a temple was constructed at the very place where the Lord appeared to His devotee and started regular pooja (Nithya Pooja).
UNIQUE FEATURES
The devotees have the good fortune to worship Siva family - a rare phenomenon (Lord Siva, Sree Parvathy, Sree Ganesh, Sree Subrahmanian (Murukan), Sree Ayyappa and Sree Anjaneya) which is not seen else where in Kerala, (if not in too many Temples in Kerala). Navagraha Temple situates in the North East comer of the temple complex.
In the TWO TIERED round Sreekovil or Sanctum Sanctorum, the Swayambhoo idol of Lord Siva is seen facing west and that of His consort Sree Parvathy facing east affectionately showering blessings in all directions.
The Sapthamathrukkal, precious black stone idols symbolising the seven divine Mothers are also worshipped in the Temple in the form of Bimbas made of Krishnasila, yet another rare phenomenon.
