Trichur (Thrissur) is known as the cultural and spiritual capital of Kerala, with a number of well-known temples and art academies gracing its cultural and religious terrains. The lush green meadows and the fascinating hillocks add to the scenic beauty of this town, that more or less sees the tourism industry as its life-line.

The beautiful town of Trichur (Thrissur) is formed around the grand Shiva temple known as Vadakkumnathan Temple, an epitome of Kerala architecture and its ancient lineage that dates back to The Mahabharata. There are plenty of other temples and churches in the town. Trichur (Thrissur) Pooram is the most popular festival celebrated here in the months of April or May, and is known for its parade of elaborately decorated elephants and generous use of firecrackers through the festivities.

One more attraction of Trichur (Thrissur) is located in Mukundapuram Taluk, the Chimmony Wildlife Sanctuary was formed in 1984. It is especially known for its avian biodiversity with 192 different species calling the sanctuary their home. Among the interesting bird species seen here are the Ceylon frogmouth, white-bellied blue-flycatcher, Malabar trogon, Loten's sunbird and lesser fish eagle. About half the mammals found in the state of Kerala, are found in this sanctuary. Poaching is a problem here. The Forest Department, however, has involved the indigenous Malayan community in its conservation efforts by forming Eco-Development Committees. The committee members patrol the forest, look out for forest fires and organise ecotourism programmes. The entry gate is just ahead of a Forest Department Check Post at Ecchippara, and the sanctuary spreads around a 10- sq km reservoir. The Inspection Bungalow is to the north of the reservoir; the Forest Department’s rafting trips begin from this side.
