Trichittatu temple is consecrated by Yudhishtara- the eldest of the Pandavas.
Temple is within the muncipal limit of Chengannur and very near to famous Mahadeva temple of Chengannur.
The round- shaped, dome like sanctum sanctorum of this temple is note worthy. The structure is made of stone. The shape of it reminds us of Budhist stupas.
