RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

The most distinguished of the royal poets of the Zamorin of Calicut, Uddanda Sastri, being a Nirgunopasaka was never given to worshipping of deities.  Whenever he visited any temple he simply stood before the deity folding his hands.  But when he stood before Rajarajeswara, the Kings, at Taliparamba he was so overwhelmed by the magnificence of the deity that he unconsciously uttered the words, 'Hara Hara Mahadeva', and Prostrated himself before the Lord.  Then and there he composed a verse to the effect that when he saw the splendorous crescent adorning the idol his hands automatically joined together in prayer.

His celebrated work, kokilasandesa, contains references to some of the most important temples of North Kerala, such as Tiruneli, Taliparamba, Trichambaram, Triprangode and Tirunavayi.
