Moozhikulam Temple

Moozhikulam Temple is a shrine dedicated to Lakshman, the brother of Lord Ram. It is located near Angamaly, in Ernakulam District.

Folklore is that Vakkey Kaimal, a local chieftain, once had a dream that idols of Lord Ram, Bharatha, Lakshman and Shatrugna had washed up on the beach of the shore nearby. As per the advice of astrologers, these idols were installed at four temples: Lord Ram at Thriprayar, Bharatha at Irinjalakuda, Lakshman at Moozhikulam and Shatrugna at Payyammal.

There is a belief that to worship at all four temples on the same day is beneficial.

Moozhikulam is 30 km from Irinjalakuda.
