ARANMULA PARTHASARATHI

Nilakkal in those days was a forest inhabited by so thousand souls. In course of time it became uninhabitable due to scarcity of water and frequent attacks Marava marauders. The inhabitants were thus forced make an exodus and they carried their idol with them. The merciful Lord Himself in the guise of a Brahmachari wandered along the banks of the Pampa and showed them the place to live in. That was Aranmula. Since the people carried their idol in a raft made of six bamboo pieces the place acquired the name Aranmula ('Aaru' being six and 'Mula' meaning bamboo). Some hold that the name may be a corruption of "Arin Vilai", that is a land fringed by a river.
