Thiruvambadi Sri Krishna Temple (തിരുവമ്പാടി ക്ഷേത്രം) is a Hindu temple in the city of Thrissur in Kerala, India. The temple is one of the two rival groups participating in the Thrissur Pooram, which is the biggest local festival in Kerala. Bhagavad Gita chanting makes the temple alive. Every day the Devaswom gives free lunch (പ്രസാദം) to people (ഭക്തര്‍).

The dress code is a must with no modern dresses allowed.

The straight road opposite the temple leads to Poonkunnam Railway station and further up to Poonkunnam junction. Behind it there is a temple for Ganesh (ഗണപതി അമ്പലം). The name of the parallel road in front is Shornur road, leading to Vadakunnatan temple on one side and Paturaikkal and then to Shornur on the other.

The temple was home to a famous elephant named Thiruvambadi_Sivasundar. He died on March 11, 2018.
