The month of Karkkidakam (July / August) is considered to be auspicious for the ‘Nalambalam Darshan’ comprising the four temples of Rama at Triprayar, Bharata at Irinjalakuda, Lakshmana at Moozhikulam (in Ernakulam) and the Shatrughna Temple at Payammel. The Nalambalam Circuit lies within the triangle formed by Guruvayur, Ernakulam and Kodungallur and a visit to these temples must be completed in a single day.
