The main prathista is panchaloha vigraha of Sree Krishna with Rukmini and Satyabama. The utsav idol is Balamurali standing in front of the cow. There are idols of Lakshmi devi, Hanuman and Garuda placed inside the srikovil. There are sub temples of Nagaraja Nagayakshi and Brahmarakhas at the main temple. The temple was established about 280 years back by the Thottumadathil family who migrated from Alleppey. The temple was later taken over by the Alappuzha Ananthanarayanapuram Thuravoor Tirumala Devaswom (AATTD). Click here to read more.
