Thiruvangad Sree Ramaswamy Temple

Thiruvangad Sri Ramaswamy is believed to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

The Rama temple is one of only five temples in Kerala dedicated to Lord Rama. It is also known as the ‘Brass Pagoda’ because of the brass sheet on its roof. This is in contrast to other temples with roofs mostly constructed from clay tiles. The soothing atmosphere of the place also led to its being referred to as ‘Swetaranyam’ or ‘white forest’.The temple is situated at Thiruvangad, Thalassery, 24km from Kannur town.

Approximately 2000 years old, the temple is an architectural marvel, with bygone sculptures and mural paintings that depict stories and scenes from various epics and legends. Many other lithic records can also be found here. The temple is a specimen of aesthetic brilliance owing to its sophisticated engravings on wood and many terracotta artworks. The engravings are estimated to be about 400 years old, portraying animals, gods, goddesses and scenes from epics like the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.

Art lovers are bound to find much to appreciate about the temple. Chakyarkoothu, a performing art, is also conducted at the temple grounds as a part of rituals there. The privilege to do so has traditionally been accorded to the Mani Chakyar family.
