RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMABA

The balikkal has no roof but is embellished by a mysterious figure with a Peculiar face. In front of the balikkal is a small rectangular building with a pyramidal roof, which is not usually found anywhere else. There is no flagstaff. An inscription on the structure of the temple tank (which is a little away from the temple on the north side) indicates that the temple and the tank were renovated in 1524 A.D.

Offerings

The main offering here is naiamrithu or ghee, made available to devotees in small pots for a rupee each. The custom is that just as kings and emperors are seen only by offering some gifts-kazhchha-the Lord of Taliparamba, who is King of Kings, can be seen only by placing naiamrithu on the sopanam (steps leading to the sanctum). The ghee offered is used for abhisheka and for lighting the lamps in the central shrine.
