A TEMPLE FOR RAMA AND LAKSHMANA

The Government of Cochin renovated the entire temple. The work was completed in 1036 M.E. (1861 A.D.) and a date for purificatory rites was fixed. But alas! The same night a fire broke out and devastated the temple. The idol on the east nada was removed to the temple tank and was thus saved. The image on the west nada could not be removed being Swayambhu. It took 25 days for the embers to die and when the idol was examined thereafter it was quite intact. The poojas were resumed. The present temple we see is the one renovated by the, erstwhile Cochin Government in 1058 M.E. (1885 A.D.).

Parashurama had entrusted the property of the temple and its administration to six illams. They were called Parasudayavar. They belonged to the Moosad caste. The eldest of the six administered the temple in consultation with others. Parasurama also appointed separate Tantris for east and west nada, and Nambudiris of five illams as temple priests. He also laid down proper pooja routine to be followed.

In course of time the administration of the temple passed on to Perumbadappu (Cochin) and Neduvirippu (Zamorin). But there were frequent quarrels between the two. They both approached the British for mediation. In those days the powerful Sakthan Thampuran ruled Cochin. The British decided in his favor although, by virtue of several landed properties lying in the region of Malabar, the administration should have properly gone to the Zamorin. Today the temple is under the administrative control of the Cochin Devaswom Board.
