Temple History :

Thirunavaya Temple, is an ancient Hindu temple, is located at Thirunavaya,12 km South of Tirur in Malappuram district of Kerala state, India. From ancient times Thirunavaya was known throughout India as a center of excellence for Vedic teachings, with Veda Paadda Saalas (Thirunnavaya Otthanmmar Maddom) for teaching the Vedas, Sastras, Tantric Mantras, performing of rituals and preaching under learned scholars. (Recently these were shifted to Cheru Thirunnavaya, a center on the South bank of Bharathapuzha).The Vaishnava sect of Hindus have 108 Thiruppathis (most holy temples) and eleven of them are now in Kerala and Thirunavaya is one among them.

It was on the sandy ridges and outskirts of Bharatapuzha that the glorious magnum event Mamankam was conducted once in every 12 years.This temple was constructed about 5000 years back. Though it had undergone periodical renovations, the last and major renovation with the reconstruction of Sanctum Sanctorum was done by the legendary Perumthachan under the direction of the Vettath Raja about 1300 years back. The reconstruction had the typical ‘ Perumthachan touch ‘ making the rays of the rising sun fall on the idol on every Medam Firs and on Kanni First,(in Dakshinayana period ie, in October). Besides the Navamukunda (Vishnu) which is the main deity of the temple, there are two other deities in the Temple: Aadi Ganesa and Sree Mahalakshmi.
