THE FIERCE LORD OF ETTUMANUR

The Celebrated Big Lamp

The temple is four or five feet below the road lo As you enter it through the Balikalpura or altar-ho you come across the celebrated Valia vilakku or the lamp, which you have to worship first before ha darshan of the main deity.

This lamp is said to have been installed in 1545 A.D. and its wicks have been burning ever since. An important vazhivadu or offering is pouring oil in this lamp. It can contain nearly 3 liters of oil. As every devotee pours oil, the overflow is collected in a huge vessal placed below the lamp. The spillover thus collected is so much that it is sufficient for the annual festivals of the temple. The soot collected on the cover of the lamp is a applied to the eyes as it is believed to cure eye-diseases. Making vows after worshipping to this holy lamp liberates people possessed by evil spirits also here.
