THE HISTORIC TALI TEMPLE

The Kolattiris of Chirakkal were the allies of Porlatiri and the enemies of the Zamorin. The story goes that the Tali Nambudiris helped a Kolattiri prince to smuggle himself into the Zamorin's palace in the guise of a Brahmin. A Thampuratti fell in love with him. And when the romance could no longer be concealed, the lovers fled, with the connivance of the Nambudiris.

The Zamorin naturally flow into a rage and seized the Tali temple by force inspite of the resistance of the Nambudiris who in those days were also doughty warriors. The Zamorin’s men killed many and their bodies were dragged and thrown on the mound now called Surgam (Durgam) nearby.
