RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

After his death the linga however disappeared into the earth.  Then his son Muchukunda offered similar prayers to Siva and got a second linga, which too disappeared in course of time.  Centuries passed.  The third Shivalinga was handed down to Satasoman, a king of Mushaka (Kolathunad) dynasty who then ruled the region.  He was an ardent devotee of Siva. On the advice of sage Agastya he prayed to Lord Siva who granted him the Shivalinga.  The king installed it in the present temple built by him.
