It’s a simple, peaceful Jain temple with ChandraPrabhu as main deity and few other tirthankras. One can carry rice to feed the pigeons, we reached at noon and lot of birds were around.

Lovely welcoming temple, everyone so friendly. Beautiful building. Try and be there for midday as a 20kilo bag of rice is given to the birds daily, the birds know and are waiting nearby to be called

The Jain temple is not far from Mattancherry jetty. It is a beautifully constructed temple worth visiting. A staff attached with the temple will give an introduction about the temple. The entry is free and the best time is to visit is around 12 noon....More

Every day the priests here will bang a gong, summoning hundreds of pigeons to circle the tower three times, before landing to be hand fed. Its an awesome sight.

The temple has beautiful architecture and it is worth seeing. A woman who spoke english gave us a quick tour of the temple explaining the history and the significance of each god worshipped here. The temple is strict on your dress code so don't wear...More

The best thing about this temple is feeding pigeons.. A great experience where in all the pigeons gather at the temple premises and you can feed grains to the pigeons.This happens everyday @ around 12 in the noon.
