Thrikkakkara is a suburb of the city of Kochi, as well as a municipality in Ernakulam District. The name Thrikkakkara is an evolved pronunciation of the word Thrikkal Kara, meaning the place of the holy foot. This connects to the tale behind the festival of Onam, by which, this is the place on which Lord Vamana set his foot to push down Mahabali to the 'lower world' Pathalam. Thrikkakkara is home for the esteemed centre of learning, the Cochin University of Science and Technology.
