About Sree Poornathrayeesa Temple

Sree Poornathrayeesa Temple in Kochi enshrines Santhanagopala Murthy (literally means “protector of infants”) as the presiding deity and is an incarnation of Lord Mahavishnu. The idol of the Lord is enshrined in a sitting position under the shade of five hoods of ‘Ananthan.' This posture is believed to be unique, unlike other Vishnu temples. The folded body of the serpent serves as the seat of the Lord. The two upper hands of Lord Vishnu hold Sudarshana Chakram (holy wheel), Sanku (conch) with a Padmam (Lotus flower) in the lower right hand. Besides the main idol, there is also an idol of Lord Ganapathi on the south side of the sanctum-sanctorum. The temple is believed to be built by Arjuna of Mahabharata and originally belonged to the Cochin Royal Family. It is believed that a couple who visits the temple is blessed with children.
