Temple History :

The Tali Mahalakshmi Temple is situated in the heart of the Kozhikode Town, Kozhikode district of Kerala State. Lord Shiva is the principle deity of this temple. Lord shiva here is in the universal form Shiva Linga. The Jyothirlingam in the sanctum – Sanctorum of the Temple was installed towards the end of Dwaparayuga by Sri. Parasurama, who was responsible for the creation of Kerala, by retrieving the land from the sea by throwing his powerful axe from the top of Sahyadri, The posture in the sanctum-sanctorum is that of Umamaheswara. Though this divine power existed from time immemorial, the attention of the citizens of Kozhikode was (bestowed on the temple) only by about 1500 years ago.

It reached its zenith during the rule of the Zamorins, who had the prestigious title Sailabdheswara (The lord of the mountain and the sea). Tali Ganapathy, Thevarathil Ganapathy, Thrumandhakunnu Bhagavathy, are all the additional deities located in the inner walls of the temple. Outside the inner wall, but within the temple, premises are Lord Ayyappa in the southwest. Thevarathil Bhagavathy just behind Lord Ayyappa and Naga in the west, facing in the eastern direction. In the northeastern side, just outside the Siva Temple premises, but inside the four wall of the temple, there is a separate Vishnu temple with a Dwajastambam of its own. Besides, there is a small temple dedicated to Narasimha Moorthy in the southern side of the Vishnu Temple. Inside the compound and north of this also Eranjipuram.

Inside the four walls of the Sreekrishna Temple, there is also the presence of Sree Valayanad Bhagavati. So with its special architectural beauty and the presence of several Gods and Goddesses on the premises, this great temple has the special significance of its own. This temple also got a special place in the cultural history of Kerala. Now, it has come to such a stage that an immediate repair, particular renovation of the sanctum-sanctorum has become an absolute necessity. The two storied sanctum-sanctorum which is in the shape of a chariot is adorned with decorative mural paintings on the walls and the sculptures in granite of lord Siva’s retinue, and birds and animals, mentioned in Puranas. The roof of the sanctum-sanctorum is completely worn out. In the first stage, worn out wooden rafters have to be replaced and fresh complete roofing with copper plates have to be undertaken. This it will cost about forty lakhs rupees. This estimated cost of Copper plating is Rs. 2000/- per square feet. This project can be undertaken only with active co-operation of the devotees and munificent donations from them. The devotees, who wish to partially fully participate in this venture, are requested to get in the touch with the administrative authorities of the temple. Praying for the blessings of Lord Mahadeva for all participants and well wishers.
