THE FIERCE LORD OF ETTUMANUR

Legends

Once Parameswara created a deer (mean in Malayalam) and a huge island for the deer to play. This: near the present Devagiri, a picturesque places about 5-km. northeast of Ettumanur. When Parashurama created Kerala out of the ocean this island became part of the entire land of Kerala.  And the place which in Sanskrit was known as Harina dweep (Harina meaning deer) when  translated into Malayalam became Manoor, the place (oor) of deer (maan).

The Maniman Tirtham described in Vamana and Padma Purana has been at this place. Thus it the name Mani-manoor, which in due course became Manoor. According to another tradition the place where Khara, Vyasa and Siva got mental bliss came to known as Ettumanoor.
