TIRUVANGAD PERUMAL

Radiantly Beautiful

The image is radiantly beautiful. A Sanskrit sloka describes it as megha syamala (dark as rain-clouds), komalanga (beautiful of limbs), aapannabhaya yogamudrita karam karunya rathnakaram (with hand in the protection gesture and an ocean of kindness grants refuge to devotees in danger and seeking solace.)

Outside the sanctum on the left side is the equally important deity of Hanuman, the foremost devotee of Rama, described by the Bhaktas of Vishnu as the "Junior Servant of Hari", (the Senior Servant being Garuda) who is always with Vishnu in personal attendance.

On the south side there are images of Subrahmanya and Ganapati in the same shrine.  These idols were said to be in Peralasseri, which during the invasion by Tipu Sultan were removed to Tiruvangad temple for safety.
