RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMABA

Coming back to Taliparamba, the Shivalinga here is only about three feet in height but when decorated with the luminous crescent i.e. with the three eyes which are quite large and prominent and the nose all made in gold the idol looks much taller and bigger and shines like a thousand suns. One remembers the beautiful description of Kailasapati in Thunjath Ezhuthachan's Adhyatma Ramayana:

Kailasachale, suryakoti sobhithe, vimalalaye, ratnapeede, samavishtam, dhyananishtam, phalalochanam, munisiddha, devadhi sevyam.  Siva residing in Kailasa, with the lustre of a crore of suns with the crescent mark on his forehead seated on a pedestal of jewels and adored by sages, Siddhas and devas.
