Destination of the day-Iringole kavu, Perumbavoor, Ernakulam, Kerala (02 May 2012)
Iringole kavu and temple is situated in Iringole of Perumbavoor near Ernakulam. The kavu and surroundings are the treasure of Biodiversity. We can see rare varities of Birds and other creatures. There is a Vanadurga temple inside the Kavu. The administration of the temple is under the control of Travancre devaswam board.
Those who come by bus can get down at Iringole post office stop, which is two km away from the Perumbavoor – Kuruppampady route. A 500 metre walk from the post office stop towards the south direction will guide you to the wonderful rare place of a temple in the tropical rain forest in the middle of a town.
Kamsan imprisoned Devaki and Vasudevan due to the fear that their eighth son Sreekrishna who is to be born soon would be his terminator from the earth. In fear and fury Kamsan decided to kill their all sons. Vasudevan planned to save his eighth son from the danger at any cost. The parents shifted baby Sreekrishna to Dhwaraka soon after he was born and placed another girl baby (an incarnation of the goddess Yoga-Nidra or Maya) in the cradle. Kamsan decided to kill the girl baby too, yet realising she was not the eight son of Vasudevan. He lifted the baby furiously above his head, but miraculously the baby became a supernatural power and remained in the atmosphere as 'IRRINNOLE'. Later this area was named as IRINGOLE. It is believed that the gods and goddesses surrounded the power in the forms of trees and plants. And later it is developed into a beautiful thick forest.
