KOCHI: Heritage Conservation Forum at Thrikkakara has urged the government to include the area including the location of Thrikkakara temple under the proposed Thrikkakara municipality. Chemmanam Chacko, one of the patrons of the forum, said here on Tuesday that the Thrikkakara area was shifted under the Kalamassery municipality years back without realising the rich heritage and glory of the region.

He said that the area has a historical place for being the focal point of the Onam celebrations held every year. Mr. Chacko urged the authorities to preserve the heritage of the place by including it under the proposed Thrikkakara municipality.
