Located 16 km east of Kumarakom, Kerala, Kumaranalloor Karthyayani devi temple is said to be more than 2400 years old.
The architecture of the temple is unique with the nalambalam and sreekovil (Garbhagriha) built in sreechakra style.
Murals in Kumaranalloor temple are precious and rare.
The temple grew under Chera rulers, later under Champakassery and Thiruvithamkur kings.
Maharaja Swathi Thirunal (1813 – 1846 CE) of Thiruvithamkur composed the famous krithi ‘Sri Kumara Nagaralaye’ in Atana Raga, in praise of deity here.
Calm, serene place!
