Adoor Overview

Adoor is a town located near Pandalam in Pathanamthitta district of Kerala. It is presently a taluk in Pathanamthitta district. The town is situated 91 km north of Thiruvananthapuram and 140 km south of Ernakulam. Adoor is recognised for its culture, locations and various cultural activities.

One of the major tourist attractions of Adoor is the Krishna Sree Parthasarathy Temple. The temple is dedicated to Lord Krishna, who is also known as ‘Parthasarathy’. He was given this name as he was the charioteer of Arjuna’s cart according the Mahabharata.

The temple is the oldest temple in the region and visited by many devotees during the Adoor Gajamela Festival. The Gajamela Festival is a festival of elephants, which is celebrated on the last day of the 10-day festival at the Parthasarathy Temple. During the festival, nine elephants decorated with accessories take part in the procession, which starts from Parthasarathy Temple and ends at the Chennapatti Temple. This procession is the highlight of the 10-day celebrations.

Ottanthullal is a traditional art form that is performed on the tenth day. This festival is celebrated during the first week of February.

The temple also celebrates the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna, which is known as the festival of Ashtamirohini. Folk arts like Parichamuttukali, Mayooranritham (peacock dance), Ammandudam, Velakali (ancient warfare dance), etc. are performed at the temple. Anandapally, a place near Adoor, is famous for the Maramadi Malsaram bull race event, which is held after the harvest.

Apart from this temple, other temples like Trichenda Mangalam Mahadeva Temple Peringanad, Sreedharma Sastha Temple Chennampallil, Sreenarayanapuram Temple Manakala and Mahavishnu Temple Elamannoor makes Adoor a significant destination for pilgrims and tourists.

There are various churches like Immanuel Marthoma Church, Chandanapally Valiyapally Church and St. Mary’s Orthodox Church in Adoor, which hold an important place in Kerala’s cultural history.

Not just temples, the town also has a host of well-known and established schools and colleges. For shopping, tourists can head to the Moolam Market, which is one of the oldest markets in Kerala.

The nearest station to Adoor is Kochi, which is 109 km away. Kochi has two railway stations namely Kochi and Ernakulam. Thiruvananthapuram International Airport is the nearest airport, which is close to 92 km from Adoor.
