Located in the village of Thirunageswaram, near Kozhikode, Uppiliappan Temple is a revered Hindu temple. Also known as Thiruvinnagar of Venkatachalapathy Temple, the temple enshrines Lord Vishnu and is constructed in the Dravidian style of architecture. Glorified in the popular Tamil work- Divya Prabandha, the shrine is counted as the 60th amidst the 108 Divya Desams dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Vishnu is worshipped as Lord Uppiliappan and his spouse Lakshmi is worshipped as Bhumi Dev.
The construction of the temple is believed to have been started during the reign of the Medieval Cholas in the 8th century AD and was completed in the times of Thanjavur Nayaks. The five-tiered gopuram is constructed within a granite wall and has two inscriptions dating from the Chola period. Administered and maintained by the Hindu Religious and Endowment Board of the Government of Tamil Nadu, Uppiliappan Temple observed six daily rituals and three annual festivals. Panchguni Festival (also known as Chariot Festival) is celebrated during March- April and thousands of pilgrims gather at the spot to be a part of the festivities.
