Ernakulam Shiva Temple - Review

Lord Shiva is Kochi's protector diety and this temple, one of the most frequented in the city, is dedicated to him. The temple, like the idol inside, faces west, towards the Ernakulam backwaters. There are two famous legends out of Hindu mythopoeia directly related to the temple and Lord Shiva. Ask the locals about them. Two other deities have a presence here. Lord Ganesha has a shrine to the south side, and the Goddess Parvati has a shrine right behind the main sanctum. Various festivals are celebrated at this temple - the Thiruvonam feast during the Onam, the Navarathri and the Thrikkarthika Festival. The architecture, with copper tile roofs and slanting windows, is typically Keralite.
