Sri Gopalakrishna Swami Temple

|| Swagatam Krishna, Sharanagatam Krishna ||

Welcome to a rare, 700+ year old ancient temple in the quaint village of Adithyapuram in Palakkad district, Kerala, India - The Kaaliya Mardhana Sri Gopalakrishna Swami Temple. The divine and enchanting idol of Lord Sri Gopalakrishna enshrined in this temple, is probably, the only one of its kind. The Lord, in his child form, effortlessly holds the poisonous five-headed serpent with his left hand and playfully stamping on its hood with HIS right foot. He also holds a handfull of pure white butter on his right hand, as "prasadam" (blessings). This is symbolic of a subtle wisdom - that those who control their 5-sense organs, can cross the ocean of "samsara" or worldly life  as easily as butter floats on water, to attain HIS holy feet (i.e. moksha/siddhi)
