ശ്രീ കൂടല്‍മാണിക്യം ക്ഷേത്രം Sree Koodalmanikyam Temple

ശ്രീ കൂടല്‍മാണിക്യം ക്ഷേത്രം
Koodalmanikyam Temple is an ancient Hindu temple in Irinjalakuda, a small town in Thrissur district, Kerala, India. Koodalmanikyam Temple has two unique features: the temple holds the image of only one deity even though most large temples in India have several; and it is also the only temple in India dedicated to the worship of Bharata (Lord Sangameshwara), the brother of Lord Rama. The temple is one of four in Kerala that form a set called Nalambalam, with each temple dedicated to one of the four brothers in the Ramayana epic: Rama, Bharata, Lakshmana and Shatrughna.
