TIRUVANGAD PERUMAL

It is probably because of the Khara episode that no Kathakali depicting the killing of Khara is staged in this temple. Once, while khara vadham or killing of Khara was being staged, when Khara called Rama to battle, the actor disappeared from the scene.  With this the play was stopped and has not been staged again.

Three Temples

When the battle with Khara and hit army was going on, Sita was hidden in a mountain cove, guarded, by Lakshmana.  It is believed the Place where Sita hid herself was in the adjoining Pokinasseri parambu or maidan where there are shrines for Sita and Lakshmana.   We are told that following a devaprasnam or astrological study, them shrines were demolished.  And on materials like stone, wood, etc. were given to the Rama temple. Plans are however afoot to construct a now temple here.

The idol at Tiruvangad is that of Vishnu, conceived and worshipped as Sri Rama. The local People endearingly call the deity Tiruvangad Perumal who grants their wishes.
