Twenty five important temples of Kerala have been included in this book. Their origin, legends, architecture, rites, rituals and customs, traditions and festivals have been well described. It is a pilgrim's as well as a tourist's guide to Kerala.
The temple is not only a place of worship but is also a house of prayer, a social club and a cultural center. A typical Malayalee begins his day by taking a bath in the temple pond, going round the deity with his face and chest smeared with ash and sandalwood paste and then starts his work. Temples in Kerala(as many as 2,200) are places of visits not only for the devotees but also for the tourists. Each temple has its own legend, its own history and it is interesting to find out the details which are given in this book. The author has told these stories in a simple yet interesting manner for the benefit of all readers. Illustrations and pictures give more details.
