Famous Temples of Kerala

Temples are part and parcel of Hindu way of life. Temples are considered as House of Gods in the earth. The concept of temple is to bring human beings and Gods together, infused with symbolism to express ones ideas and beliefs. A temple incorporates all elements of Hindu Cosmos, presenting the "Good" the "Evil", the "Human", as well as the element of Hindu sense of "Cyclic" time (Kala Chakra), and the essence of life - symbolically presenting the four purusharthas - Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. Temples are spiritual destinations for Hindus.
