An ancient temple dedicated to Nava Mukunda, a form of Lord Vishnu is located at Thirunavaya, on the banks of river Bharathapuzha, is known to be the culture cradle of northern Kerala. It is believed that the idol installed in this temple is the ninth idol installed by famous saints known as Navayogis.

Legends say that the first eight idols disappeared as soon as they were placed and the ninth one sunk up to knee which was stopped by chanting of mantras. It is believed that when the idol would descend into the earth, Kaliyuga will come to an end.

This place in Thirunavaya is a land of soft sand and was the location for the great festival known as “Mamankam” - warrior fights was held once in 12 years. Mamankam was an occasion where the members of the royal family would assemble & celebrate for 28 days. The festival was last held in 1755 AD.

Devotees come to this pristine sandy beach to offer last rites to the loved ones. There are other temples with deities as Shiva and Brahma in Thirunavaya.
