RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

One of the Zamorins was an ardent devotee of the Lord of Taliparamba. After years of intense worship he is said to have entered the sanctum sanctorum and merged With the God. Even today when the elder Zamorin dies the information should be given to the temple authorities and the Lord is supposed to observe mourning. Even the distant Travancore kings paid obeisance to the deity by offering an elephant whenever a ruler is crowned or visited the temple.

Taliparamba was formerly known as Perinjellur or Lakshmipuram in Sanskrit. This was one of the sixty-four gramams or villages in Kerala. There were sixty-four Nambudiri families in this village who were the uralars or temple trustees. Taliatiri elected from those Nambudiris conducted the administration of Taliparamba on behalf of the Lord of the temple. Taliatiri enjoyed enormous powers which he was expected to use for the protection of the people and also for the punishment of the evil-doors.
