A TEMPLE FOR RAMA AND LAKSHMANA

After the Kurukshetra battle the Pandavas, on the advice of Sage Vyasa, came down here and performed oblations for those who were killed in the battle so that their souls might attain sadgati. Thereafter the Pandavas prayed at the temple and went through Punarjanani. They also installed a few temples on the banks of the river Someswaram, Ivarmatom and Kothakurussi.

Ekadashi Festival

The important annual festival here is Ekadasi in the Malayalam month of Kumbha (February- March). On Ashtami, Navami and Ekadasi days there is vilakku (festival of lights), niramalas (decoration with flower garlands) and elephant processions. Elaborate feasts used to be hold in the past, which like other temples have been discontinued with the change of times. On Ekadasi day, of course, hundreds of devotees observe fast and forgo their sloop. They spend their time in temples in prayers and in witnessing a variety of entertainments given freely by famed artistes.
