Situated 21 Km from trissur, and 10 km from Irinjalakuda Railway Station, this ancient temple is perhaps the only one in India dedicated to Bharatha, the brother of Sree Rama. The eleven-day Annual Festival featuring a pageant of thirteen caparisoned elephants (held in April/May), marks the end of the festival season in Kerala.It is open from 03:30 am - 11:30 am & 05:00 pm - 08:30 pm).

SREE KOODALMANIKYAM temple is the embodiment of peace and sanctity,enshining LORD SANGAMESHWARA -God almighty.. The temple is surrounded by four vast ponds . the one inside the temple occupying the entire northern quarter of the ten acre compound is believed to be sanctified by KULIPINI MAHARSHI who had held a great yaga here The pond is known as "KULIPINI THEERTHAM".

Temple is provided with an ancient drainage system which allows no water logging however heavy be the downpour during monsoon. 

The popularly known as Koodalmanikam of Sangameswara is supposed to be the Para Brahma moorthy(The God almighty).The sanctum is believed to have the presence of all other godly powers and hence the name KOODALMANIKYAM - Koodal means" joints together".
