Thrissur Tourism & Travel Guide

Thrissur, the land of temples, is one of the most visited cities in Kerala. The waterfalls and the scenic temples here offer one a mix of nature, history and culture. Among the most significant temples, the Vadakummnathan temple is a must visit. The temple is slightly orthodox and allows only Hindus to enter. The temple is known for its antique murals and paintings and even if you aren't spiritual, do visit the temple for its beauty and brilliant architecture. Another stunning spot in Thrissur is the Athirappilly Waterfalls. The space around the waterfalls is the perfect picnic spot allowing you an unobstructed view of the gushing waters. Though, like all waterfalls, this one is in all its glory during monsoons, but you can still spend a day here irrespective of the season. Among other important temples, Vadakkunnathan Temple, Thiruvambadi Krishna Shrine and Triprayar Sri Rama Temple are a must visit. A day in Thrissur is more than enough to explore the city and if you have plans to head to the popular backwaters, let Thrissur be a short stop.

The first two days in Thrissur were relatively uneventful (except for the fact that we were /we thought we were being trailed by a red Merc wherever we went) as we attended the conference and presented our papers....

Sholayar Forest Ranges, Thrissur
Its early morning 6.00 as we (myself and a colleague) started in my Royal Enfield, The sun started to rise. Thrishur was almost 125+ kms from coimbatore. we were able to reach it by 8.30. Landing at Arya's Hotel in Thrishur NH, we had Kerala special Kozha puttu for breakfast. After a little drag we move further to reach the Chalakudy road which was much easier to find, the road which leads to Adhirapally Falls. After reaching the falls we drenched ourselves for  an hour. It was almost 11.30. The best part is about to start. Many people think that Adhirapally Falls is a dead end road. But there is a beauty which leads you to Valparai from there. In almost no time we reached the check posy for Valparai road. This leads you up to the sources of Adhirapally Falls, going further to valparai. It's a 90 kms stretch were you can enjoy wilderness. The road was cover both the sides by trees. It was drizzling all the time. Condition by the check post Police officials is that we have to reach the other end by 2hrs. Needless to say the road was laid in best quality that you can easily reach in given time, but the greenery around the place, a small river running in the verge of road following you all the way uphill, breath taking views and animals will not let you reach though. You Can reach Valparai in 2 hrs. From after having lunch at valparai we reached Coimbatore back in evening through Pollachi. All I could say is its the most beautiful trip I had ever taken so far!
