Tali Temple - Review
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.

Edit 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.
