RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMABA

Another Malayalam work which gives, details of the origin of this temple is chelluranathodayam which is a champu, a narration in verse and prose, written by Nilakanthan Namboodiripad who belonged to Perinjellur gramam, the original name of Taliparamba. (Some say Punam Nambudiri, one of the patinettara kavikal or eighteen royal poets of the Zamorin’s court wrote the champu.)

Attack by Tipu Sultan

The Taliparamba temple also was subject to attack by Tipu Sultan.  One finds relics of the old gigantic gopuram at the entrance, which was demolished by Tipu's army. The story goes that when the temple was under siege, the head priest was inside the sanctum sanctorum and prayed ceaselessly day and night.
