Palakkad is endowed with some very beautiful temples. The Vishwanathaswamy or Shiva Temple has an imposing flagpole, reaching for the skies. The Shiva Temple is a low quadrangular building on the banks of the Kalpathy River, dating back to 1425. It has been built as a replica of the Kashi Temple at Benares.

The Vadakkanthara Temple deity, Bhagvathy, is an incarnation of Kannagi, the heroine of the Tamil epic Silappadhikaram. Fireworks are set off at 6 pm sharp in the temple compound. Also, Manapullikaavu Temple is a major Devi shrine and is the other major temple in Palakkad.

The Kunnathurmedu Sreekrishna Temple is located at the heart of Palakkad town. An idol of the child Krishna is the chief attraction here. The Jain temple on the Kalpathy River is believed to have been built about 500 years ago by a Jain head, for the Jain sage Chandranathaswamy. Interestingly, Palakkad was once home to a community of 400 Jain families.
