Thirunavaya Temple is a famous Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu and other dieties like Goddess Laxmi and Ganesha. The deity is called “Nava Mukundan” as it is believed that the idol was the ninth one to be installed in the shrine by a group of Hindu saints known as “Navayogis”. The first eight idols disappeared as soon as they were placed there and the ninth sank to its knees before it was forcibly stopped.

The image of Nava Mukundan is portrayed only from above the knee, the rest of the image being concealed within the ground.
