A TEMPLE FOR RAMA AND LAKSHMANA

The entire courtyard of the temple is paved with stone slabs. On the north side is the temple tank. There is no well inside the temple, which is another peculiarity. The water required for daily worship is drawn from a tank situated in the n6rth-east side. Therefore no one is allowed to use this tank. If any pollution is suspected water is brought from the nearby Bharatapuzha.

Punarlanani

About 3 km. from the temple on the East Side there is a cave about one furlong long in the southwest direction. This is called Punarjanani and is believed to have been built by Viswakarma, the celestial builder at the behest of Parasurama. Unless human beings complete the proscribed number of births there is no salvation for them. It is as a result of evil deeds that man takes birth again, and again. Passing through this cave is believed to relieve devotee of one such birth.
