 Vaikom Temple  Timings, History & Online Booking

Vaikom Sri Mahadeva Temple, a Hindu temple, is located in Vaikom (Kerala), India. Lord Shiva is the main deity at this temple. Vaikom Sree Mahadeva Temple, which is adored by both Vaishnatines and Shaivaites, is one of the few temples. The name Vaikkathappan was given to Vaikom’s Shiva by many. It is believed that the Lord grants all requests if one worships these three temples before performing the “Ucha Pooja”.


Vaikom Sree Mahadeva Temple


This temple is part of a formidable trio, which also includes Ettumanoor Shiva Temple and Kaduthuruthy Thaaliyil Mahadeva. Many believe the Shiva Linga is from the Treta Yoga. This temple is the oldest in Kerala and has not been violated by pooja since its inception.


Legend has it that Ravana obtained the Saiva Vidya Upadesam from Malyavan (Ravana’s great-grandfather). Khara, an asura, was a great devotee of Lord Shiva and traveled to Chidambaram to perform extreme penance to attain moksha. His penance was so well received by Lord Shiva. He granted him all the boons that he asked for and gave him three huge Shiva Lingas.

Khara was heading south from Kailash carrying the three Lingas in both his right and left hands. Khara carried the Lingas in his right hand, his left hand, and his neck. He was tired and laid the Lingas to rest.

When he attempted to grab them, the Lingas refused to move. Khara gave the Lingas to Maharshi Viaghrapada who was with him and asked the sage for protection and worship.
