Top attractions and landmarks in Thrissur
For a complete Thrissur holiday, make sure you include these attractions in your itinerary:
- The Vadakummnathan Temple - Regarded as the most important attraction in the city, this huge temple is rich in history with more than a century of tales to tell. However, take note that it only allows Hindu devotees to get inside the complex, which means that if you are an adherent of another religion, then you can just have a glimpse of it from the outside.
- Shakthan Thampuran Palace - Also called the Vadakkechira Palace, this building was reconstructed in 1795 in a Kerala-Dutch style. Now, it is preserved by the country’s Archaeological Department.
- Anakotta - This elephant sanctuary is unique in a way that it houses elephants of different natures and sizes. A trip to this place allows you to spend time walking amidst several elephants that are kept in a 10-acre plot of coconut groves.
