One of the major attraction in Kalady is the Vamanamoorthy temple located at Thrikkakara near Kalady. This is one of the rare temples dedicated to Vamanamoorthy, one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu. The temple showcases the architectural beauty and workmanship of ancient Kerala. Inscriptions dating back to 10th to the 13th centuries can be found in this shrine.

It is believed that Lord Vishnu was incarnated as Vamana to send the Asura King Mahabali to “Pathalam”. Mahabali was a generous and efficient king and his fame even reached to the ears of Indra, the King of Gods. They saw a threat in the growth and fame of Mahabali.

Hence Vamana, disguised as a short Brahman man, with a wooden umbrella came and requested King Mahabali for three steps of land for him to live in. King Mahabli agreed inspite of the warning given by his Guru Sukracharya. Soon after Vamana, the Supreme God grew so huge that he could step from heaven to earth, and earth to the lower worlds in a matter of 2 steps. Unable to fulfill his promise of three steps of land to the Supreme God, King Mahabali offers his head for the third step. Thus Vamana placed his foot on King Mahabali's head and gives him immortality for his benevolence.

The best time to visit this temple is during the annual Onam celebrations is this temple.
