About Tali Temple, Calicut

The Tali Temple is among the famous tourist attractions in Kozhikode and is visited by hundreds of devotees throughout the year. The temple was constructed in the 14th century by Swamy Thirumulpad, the Zamorin, within the grounds of his palace complex. Annually, the temple complex bustles with activity as it also serves as the venue of Revathy Pattathanam, the cultural and intellectual event.

The Tali Temple is an example of how wood and laterite can be integrated to form something truly beautiful and is a common feature of the Kerala style of architecture. What is quite fascinating is the intricate brass-work on the walls of the inner sanctum as well as the brass carvings on the wooden roof.

Tali Temple, Calicut Reviews

  • It is one of the most ancient Hindu Temples. However, not allowed to visit with western dresses. Dhoti essential for men and can't wear shirts. Timings are also an issue. It is closed from 12 to 5 pm. Check details before going.

  • Tali Shiva Temple or Tali Mahakshetram is a Hindu temple dedicated to the deity Lord Shiva, situated in the heart of the Kozhikodecity, Kerala. The temple was built in the 14th century by Swami Thirumulpad, Zamorin of Calicut. Tali temple is one of the oldest temples in Kozhikode. The founding and prosperity of Kozhikode city is closely linked with the sanctity of this ancient temple. It is believed that the lingam in the sanctum of the Temple was installed towards the end of Dwaparayuga by Sri. Parasurama. The posture in the sanctum is that of Umamaheswara. Though this divine power existed from time immemorial, the attention of the citizens of Kozhikode was (bestowed on the temple) only by about 1500 years ago. Later on the temple reached its zenith during the rule of the Zamorin of Calicut, who had the prestigious title Sailabdheswara. The temple to its present state was built in the 14th century.

  • One of the very old temples of kozhikode, one should visit at least once in lifetime. The Shiva temple is the central attraction. The old natural paintings on the walls are wonderful, apart from the wooden carvings. One need to enter the enter in traditional dress (Dhoti mundu). Pant not allowed. However, one can avail the mundu for rental for sometime, for nominal charges. There is a ganesha temple within shiva temple. Adjacent to this is the krishna temple and Narasimha temple.. Surrounded these are Aiyappa swamy temple and Naaga temple.. Outside the temple there is a big lake, but surprisingly, that seems to be neglected and that is not maintained well..

  • The atmosphere is great. I used to visit my friend's studio right next to the temple back in 2012 - 2013. Easily one of the must visit temples in Kozhikode if you're a tourist. Best, Mighildotcom

  • nice temple to pray. it is located in the heart of calicut city near to Palayam Busstand.
