Thiruvalla temple is one of the largest temples of Kerala and a fine
specimen of its traditional style of temple architecture. The temple has
many shrines though it is mainly dedicated to Lord Vishnu.
50- feet high flag post is of granite. An idol of garuda, vehicle of
Lord Vishnu, is fixed atop the flag post.
A unique attraction of this temple is the Kathakali performance staged
every evening, as ritual offering. It is believed that Vishnu, the
principal deity, watches the performance from his abode.
Ladies are allowed entry to the sanctum sanctorum only on two days;
'Vishu' and 'Thiruvathira'. Annual festival, 'Uthraseeveli' is
celebrated on the 'Makayiram' asterism in 'Meenam' (March - April).
Apart from the religious ceremonies, cultural programmes are also held.
