The city has one of the most important temples of Hindu Shaivism, that is the Vadakunnathan temple.The district is also home of one of the most holiest Hindu Vaishnava temples, the Guruvayur temple.The modern City of Thrissur rose to importance after Sakthan Thampuran ascended the throne of Kingdom of Cochin (1769–1805).He changed the capital of Cochin Royal Family to Thrissur from Mattancherry and abolished the power of Namboothiri community, which controlled most of the temples of Thrissur district.In the beginning of the 17th century the Portuguese power was reduced and Dutch became the main power.With the help of Dutch, Cochin Royal Family recaptured Thrissur from Samoothiri in 1710.The maharaja destroyed the forest around the Thekkinkadu Maidan which seats the Vadakkumnathan temple, and started the most spectacular cultural festival called Thrissur Pooram.

Though most of the monuments were well protected, the dolmen at Porkulam was in a neglected condition.The early political history of Thrissur is interlinked with that of the Chera Dynasty of the Sangam age, who ruled over vast portions of Kerala and Tamil Nadu.After the Cheras, the place was later ruled by the Kingdom of Cochin (Perumpadapu Swaroopam).The Ramavarmapuram menhir is also believed to be a monument belonging to the Sangam period in the South Indian history.Another monolithic monuments like Dolmens and rock-cut caves are at Porkulam, Chiramanengad, Eyyal, Kattakambal and Kakkad.
