Often you meet an elephant on the roads of Thrishivaperoor
The name Thrissur is a shortened form of Thiru-Shiva-Per-Ur (Lord-Shiva-Name-Town) literally translates to 'The City or Town with the name of the "Lord Shiva"'. The name owes itself to the most prominent feature of the city, that is the Vadakkumnathan Temple, which has Shiva as its presiding deity.
Alternately, Thri-Shiva-Perur (Three-Shiva-Palace) means the place with three famous Shiva temples which are said to be – the Vadakkumnathan Temple, Kottapuram Shiva temple, and the Poonkunnam Siva Temple. Thrissur was also known as "Vrishabhadripuram" (Kailasam of the South) in ancient days. The city hosts the Thrissur Pooram festival, the most colorful and spectacular temple festival in Kerala.
