Sreevallabha Temple Thiruvalla

Sreevallabha Temple in Thiruvalla is one of the oldest Hindu temples in India and is located in Pathanamthitta district of Kerala. The temple is noted for its orthodox cultural and religious norms, making it one of the most visited temples every year. Lord Sreevallaban is worshipped here, but the uniqueness of the temple is pronounced through its differential cultures and architectural grandeur. The fine mural paintings and carvings made on stone and wood stand out as proud components of India’s cultural heritage. 

Sreevallabha Temple is one among the 108 Divya Desams of Lord Vishnu. Several scriptures and religious documents have repeatedly glorified the temple. Ancient texts like the Garuda Purana and Matsya Purana considered this edifice of architectural brilliance as a Vallabha Kshethram. Those who are aware of Kathakali would be treating themselves to a grand show of the same in Sreevallabha Temple each day.

Deities Worshiped

Sreevallabhan and Sudarshana Moorthy (Sudarshana Chakra) are the main deities worshiped at Sreevallabha Temple. The temple also has shrines of Lord Ganapathy, Shiva, Ayyappan, Goddess Kali, Kurayappa Swamy, Vedavyasa, Durvasa, Vadakkumthevar and Vishwak Sena, Goddess Lakshmi, Bhudevi, Varaha and Lord Dakshinamurthy.

Devotees are advised to take one outside Pradakshina or circumambulations and then three inside pradakshina in the temple. One should worship the Garuda dhwajam before entering Naalambalam.

One of the unique feature of the temple is that, Lord Sreevallabha is dressed like a hunter twice in a year - on Thiruvathira in Dhanu masam and Vishu in Medam month.
