Thrikkakara Vamanamoorthy Kshetram is one among the 108 Divya Desham. Vamanamoorthy is worshipped as Thrikkakarayappan here. Thrikkakara is Thiru Kaal Kara means the land where Vamanamoorthy kept his foot
(paadam)
Sthala Puranam is associated with Story of Mahabali and Vamana /Trivikrama avatar. Mahabali was an Asura king. Devas feared his reign which extended till Patalam. Mahavishnu, in Vamana avatar, came to Mahabali and asked for 3 feet land. Bali, without knowing it was Mahavishnu👇
granted the wish.

Vamana grew to an immense size and covered the heaven with first step and the Earth with another. There was no space left for 3rd step so Mahabali offered his own head to place his feet before Vamana. These events happened at this place.
When Mahabali was pushed into Paatalam, he made a request of visiting his people once in a year. This day is celebrated as Onam. Thus this is the place of origin of Onam festivities.

Story of Panduranga Vittala and Bhaktha Pundalik
#Ashadi_Ekadashi
Once a devotee named Pundalik was traveling to Kashi and reached the Ashram of Kukkut Muni. At night Pundalik heard the voice of some women in the ashram. He came to out to look what was happening and saw that
they were Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswathi rivers. Pundalik was surprised to see them. The three women told him that muni Kukkut had served his parents most faithfully and accumulated Punya enough to earn Moksha.
Pundalik never cared his parents. This incident changed him.
He understood his mistake and rushed back home and started looking after them. From then onwards the care of his old mother and father came before everything else.
 
Shri Krishna was moved by the sincere devotion of Pundalik towards his parents & decided to visit Pundalik’s home
