Sri Paambanaiyappa Perumal Temple -Thiruvanvandoor

About the Temple & Location:

This sthalam is situated 4 miles away from Sengannoor in North in Kerala state. We can also reach this place by traveling by bus that starts from Thirucchenganoor to Kottayam. Since, this is a small village, there is no lodging facility, one has to stay in Thiruvalvaazh.


The temple was built by Nakulan – one among the Pancha Pandavas which is the specialty of this kshetaram.

Sthlapuranam :
