Welcome to Evoor Temple
Evoor is one of the sacred Hindu religious places in the Kerala State especially in Onattukara. The word Evoor is originated from 'Eytha ooru', meaning the place from where the arrows were showered to make the 'sharakoodam'. Located in the South of Alappuzha, Evoor is famous for the ancient Sri Krishnaswamy temple which formed in the presence of Bhagavan Sri Krishna himself and it is among the important 26 Mahavishnu shrines. The history of the temple linked to ‘Khandava-dahanam’ (burning of Khandava forest), portrayed in Mahabharata. It is evident from the remains of burnt trees found here widely. Further evidences are seen in nearby ‘Mannarasala’ and ‘Pandavarkavu’ temples in this part of Onattukara. It is also believed that the great Kanva Maharishi (one of the Saptarshis), had lived in the nearby area ‘Kannamangalam’ (Kanva-mangalam) and his “Ashrama ’ (hermitage) later became a temple
