RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

The Pride of Brahmins

The Brahmins were proud of their status and learning. When Marthanda Varma of Travancore sent invitations to them to participate in the very first murajaparn he started they derided stating "that we have only Perumtrikovilappan (the Lord of Taliparamba) as our Maharaja." Such was the pride and esteem in which they held their deity.

According to Kerala Mahatmya, it was Bhargavarama who brought 15,000 Brahmins from Ahichatrarn and settled them at Taliparamba. Mayura Varma, one of the Kolattiris (as the rulers of Kolathunad were called) built the village for those Brahmins and endowed them -with properties to enable them to lead a life ofm piety and learning. Indeed there was no village in Kerala to equal Taliparamba in respect of learning, devotion etc.
