Temple History :

Sri Sooryanarayana Temple in Kannur has located at Kadirur a village in Thalassery taluk, which belongs to the Kannur District of Kerala state in India. Kadirur is the short form of ‘Kadiravanur’ which means the land of Lord Sooryanarayana. Kadirur Sree Suryanarayana Temple is an ancient temple which is believed to have originated in the 13th century. The devotees, who come to worship here, can achieve the blessings of both Surya or Sun God and Narayan or Mahavishnu. Hence the deity of this temple came to know by the name Soorya-Narayana. Sooryanarayana Temple in Kannur has separate shrines for Lord Ganapathi, Mahadeva and Goddess Durga. During the festival season, the main attraction in this temple is the divine dance with the idol of the deity on the head, known as Thidambu Nritham. This traditional dance can be viewed on consecration day celebrations and also during Mandala festivals in December. The prominent offering of this temple is the dedication of Naiamrithu or pure ghee in a small pot to the main deity. Since Sun God is the leader of nine planets, there are special rituals known as Navagraha Pooja for the sun god and his associates. It is believed that by performing this offering the negative influence of these nine planets on horoscopes can be neutralized considerably. When Tippu Sultan the ruler of Mysore attacked Kerala, he looted the precious collections in the temple and remained isolated for some years until the renovation of the temple was taken place in the year 1825.

The Historic Importance Suryanarayana Temple in Kadirur village in Kannur district of Kerala, India. Sooryanarayana Temple is one of the oldest and the second largest Surya Temple after Konark Sun Temple in India. As per legend, the origin of this temple is related to the Hindu epic Ramayana. It is said that Sree Rama was there once on his way to Lanka in search of his consort Sita Devi. It was during this period that he consecrated the idols of Lord Subramanya at Peralasseri and Merkeri, and Lord Shiva at Pinnarayi. In the mean tmeantimeVedic Brahmins who were residing at Kadirur wished to have the blessings of Sree Rama and started meditating him. Lord Rama was pleased with their dedicated prayers and felt the presence of Surya Deva (Sun God) while blessing the Vedic Brahmins. This persuaded him to install the idol of the Sun god with the features of Mahavishnu.
