Jainamedu Jain Temple, Palakkad

Situated on the western suburbs of Palakkad town, not far from the railway station, this historic 32 feet long, 20 feet wide granite temple displays images of the Jain Thirthankaras and Yakshinis. Located on the southern bank of the Kalapathy River, the region around the temple, known as Jainamedu or Jainimedu, is one of the few places in Kerala where the vestiges of Jainism have survived. Palakkad was once home to a community of 400 Jain families, but only a few families remain today. It is at a Jain house here that Malayalam poet Kumaranasan wrote his monumental poem Veenapoovu or The Fallen Flower.

Temple timings: 0700 - 1030 hrs & 1700 - 1900 hrs
