TIRUVANGAD PERUMAL

Brass Pagoda

There are no records to indicate the origin or the construction of this ancient temple. According to Kerala Mahatmyam, a Sanskrit work, the deity is said to have been installed by Parasurama.  But scholars dispute this.  Keralotpathi, a Malayalam work, and Logan's famous Malabar Manual, which give a detailed account of traditional history of early Kerala, contain references to the temple. Logan refers to the temple as a 'brass pagoda' and states that "the Hindu Pagoda in Tiruvangad dedicated to Sri Rama, an incarnation of Vishnu, is the only brass pagoda covered with brass sheets instead of tiles of which the walls and gopurams were in a state of disrepair."  Of the temple tank he mentions: "There are two large tanks in the town, the largest in Tiruvangad measuring 250 x 340 feet belonging to the temple".
