Beautiful deity, large and peaceful temple grounds and the most delicious Ambalappuzha Pal Payasam ( sweet made out of rice, sugar and milk). I wish I could... More

With a historic link to the Guruvayur Krishna Temple, Ambalapuzha Krishan Temple is mostly uncrowded with many many options to pay direct obeisance to the reigning deity of standing Krishna. The Palpayasam at this temple is still famous and craved for.

The story of the travel has been mentioned in many historic books and the event is depicted by the Ambalapuzha boat race. A serene and beautiful temple about 3 kms. from the Kollam -Alleppey National Highway stretch. The milk payasam is... More

The temple is located at Ambalappuzha, around 12 kms from Alappuzha.The atmosphere in temple was quite and calm and luckily not crowded when we visited. This temple is famous for Palpayasam. All males visiting the temple have to remove shirts while entering inner sanctum of temple.
