Trichambaram Temple is a Krishna temple located at Taliparamba in the Kannur district of Kerala, South India. The temple is believed to have got the name from Thiru Shambara or the holy Shambara in reverence to Maharishi Shambara who is supposed to have meditated here. The main deity of the temple is Shree Krishna after "Kamsavadham", sitting in Raudra posture (ferocious posture). This temple is considered equal in status to the world-famous Guruvayoor Temple, and is also called 'North Guruvayoor'. .
The annual temple festival (Utsavam) is a colourful event. The fortnight-long festival begins on Kumbham 22 of Malayalam calendar (which generally falls on March 6) every year with the Kodiyettam (hoisting of a religious flag) and comes to an end on Meenam 6 (which generallay falls on March 20) with Koodipiriyal (Ending of this festival). In between these dates, for 11 days, Thitambu Nriththam (a sort of dance with the deities of Krishna and Balarama) is held at Pookoth Nada (1 km from Trichambaram temple).
