Puliyarmala Jain Temple
Sep 2018 • Family
This a very old Jain temple which belongs to 13th century. Now there is no complete structure, only ruins are present. Nice place to visit.

"traditional Dravidian style architecture"
Dec 2017 • Friends
The 13th century Jain temple with its Dravidian style architecture, beams and pillars carved out of stones, stone slab roof is of much heritage value. The carvings/engravings on the doors and walls though the temple is almost in ruined condition will attract anyone even if you are not interested in studying history. The temple is believed to be used by Tippu Sultan as his ammunition store. Dedicated to Jain Tirthankar the temple is also named Ananthantha Swami Temple. Now this serene place is under the Archeological department and they have managed to maintain it properly with grass walkways and gardens. We were rather confused regarding the history of the temple and a native of Kalpetta explained the details.

Great Place - BUT JUST RUINS!! (see the photos)
Nov 2016 • Friends
. Great TOURIST ATTRACTION to be brought to more to the public!
.. Heart breaking to see the present "RUINED" condition ..!!!
.. But go through the details, with a local, knowledgeable (Elderly man), we will be excited with the HISTORY of the PAST!
.. Each Pillar, wall, etc. has many epics to tell!!
.. Note the wall engravings.
.. There are many research papers, including details in internet

Waste of Time & travel !!

Since we noticed its on the way to Kuruvadweep from Edakkal Cave .... we visited this ruins.....its totally isolated place where no-one to guide you...just a board from Archaeological survey of India saying " Protected Monument -whoever destroys,removes,injures,alters,defaces,imperils or misuses this monument shalle be punishable with imprisonment which may extend to 2yrs or fine of 1 lakh INR...or both "....Seeing this Board , the ruins & its maintenance you do feel wonder /laugh..!!....

It may or may not be a hidden gem....I feel just a Ruins in Rock with few carvings,Creepers in the coffee plantation..If some one there to guide you -its importance ,what is this carvings for,how can one identify Jain temple & all ..it may be another experience......I even saw something similar to this ruins while going from this location to Kuruvadweep...Thank God -there was no boards from Archaeological department for it....

But I really wonder how Jain settlement happened in Wayanad,Kerala years ago. Whats the story behind it!!

The photograph shown in this is not from Puliyarmala Jain Temple. I think it is not a big monument. But a quite beautiful place.

There is not a lot to see apart from the temple columns, but they are carved beautifully, and the whole place is very well looked after
