Legend of Chengannur Vishnu Temple
Chengannur Vishnu Temple is associated with a legend according to which the eldest of the Pandavas, Yuddhisthira prayed to the Lord Vishnu here. He asked to be pardoned for his act on the battlefield where he uttered the words 'Ashwattaama hatah kunjaraha' in an attempt to deceive his teacher Dronacharya and lead him to a defenceless state. In that state Dronacharya was killed by Dhristadyuna, Draupadi's brother.
