A TEMPLE FOR RAMA AND LAKSHMANA 

The temple was among the richest in Kerala with one Iakh paras of paddy as income from its lands, but to day, thanks to the land reforms of the Kerala Government, like several other temples in the State, Tiruvilwamala also struggles for survival.  The temple is at present administered by the Cochin Devaswom Board.

One prominent feature of Kerala temples,  that is the flagstaff, which beckons you from afar, is absent here.  SO also the temple towers of which only the, bases remain on the west and eastern gateways. Its beautiful carvings indicate how ornate the gopurams were.  They had seven storeys and were so tall that the lamps fit there could be seen from the platform of the peepal tree at Tirunavayi Navamukundan temple, which is some 40 km. away.
