Triprayar Sri Rama temple (25 km from Thrissur): The temple is situated picturesquely on the banks of Triprayar river. The image of Rama is in the form of Vishnu. There is an image of Dakshinamurthi with a garland in one hand. This, it is believed, represents Brahma. There is, however, no image of Hanuman.He is believed to be in the Namaskara Mandapam where he is worshipped.
Thiruvilvamala (29 km from Thrissur): Here are two hill shrines for Rama and Lakshmana in picturesque surroundings. Though the images are of Vishnu, they are worshipped as Rama and Lakshmana. At the eastern entrance, Hanuman is enshrined.
Koodal Manickam Bharata temple: This rare temple dedicated to Sri Bharata is situated at Manavalassery, about 10 km from Irinjalakkuda station. The image, it is said, is one of the four found on the seashore by Vakkey Kaimal, a local chieftain and devotee, all similar in size holding Shanku, Chakra, rosary and mace in the hands. The four images were of Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrugna. Kaimal installed the image of Rama at Triprayar, Lakshmana at Muzhikulam, Bharata near Irinjalakkuda and Shatrugna at Payammel.
Bharatha is also known as Koodal Manickam. Once when his forehead emitted a strange light, his devotees were surprised. They brought a stone (Manickam) to the temple. When it was brought near the idol, it merged with the light on his forehead.
