Ambalapuzha Temple (Sreekrishna Temple)

About Ambalapuzha Temple:

Ambalapuzha Temple is counted amongst one of the most important Shri Krishna Temples of the South Indian state of Kerala. This temple is one of the oldest temples of the state, situated in small town - Ambalapuzha of Alappuzha district. According to the sayings the temple has been built in 790 A.D. by then local ruler Chembakasserry Pooradam Thirunal-Devanarayanan Thampuran. The temple is the live example of typical Kerala style of architecture.

The Ambalapuzha temple is associated directly with the Guruvayoor Shri Krishna Temple, as the idol of ShriKrishna from Guruvayoor Temple was brought here in 1789 for safekeeping, during the raids of Tipu Sultan. Inside the main sanctum of the temple, the commanding idol is made of beautifully carved black granite. It was established inside the temple in 1613 A.D. on the propitious day of Thiruvonam. To the right of the idol of Parthasarthi, the idol of Ambalapuzha is linked through a whip, while to its left there is a Shanku (sacred conch).
