Nedumpuram Tali Temple is situated at Nedumpuram in Thrissur District
. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva
. The shivling
is placed in the inner chamber on a high pedestal without a Namaskara mandapa. The deity is locally known as Thiru Maa Thaliyappan (the great lord of Tali.) This temple is one of the two royal temples of erstwhile Nedumpuraiyur Nadu, the other being Nedumpura Shiva temple (Kulashekharanallur).
This east-facing temple can be seen from a distance due to its imposing structure. The mukhappu (gable windows) which are a prominent feature of the ancient style of architecture is the specialty of the temple. The mukhappu encloses a Nandi facing Shiva.
The main sanctum sanctorum is dvi-tala tile roofed. There is a Vaathilmadom structure, which is two-storeyed and tiled. The shrikovil with a pyramidal tiled roof crowned by a stupi is square in structure and is attached with Mukha Mandapam. There are two Dwarapalakas at the entrance of the Mukha Mandapam. The sopana is carved with an arch enclosing a figure of Lord Ganesh and a poorna kumbha on one of the sides. The sides of the sopana have railing.
The sub-deities enshrined in the temple are Parvati, Ganesh, Ayyappa and Naga devatas. Lord Ganesh has a separate sanctum in the south-west corner. A koovala (vilva) tree stands behind this shrine. This is a very rare sight as usually no trees are planted inside the
nalambalam. In the north-west corner of the Vaathilmadom, there is a shrine of Lord Krishna. The temple well is on the north-eastern side of the nalambalam.
The Tali Temple is 2 km from Tali Road Bus stop on the Pattambi-Nelluvaya route. There is also a bus plying up to Tali from Wadakanchery and Thrissur at selected timings.
