The temples in Kerala date back to the Renaissance period in Hinduism. The State houses a large number of temples - from those dedicated to Triumvirate viz. Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Siva to those without an idol or any ritual, dedicated to the Universal Consciousness.
In the past, temples were not mere centres of worship as they promoted art and culture as well. They are also the citadels of many popular fine arts of Kerala. The architecture, beautifully sculpted idols and ritual art forms to appease the deities, illustrate the artistic excellence of the State.
