 SRI RAMA TEMPLE AT TIPRAYAR

For several years the balikkal kept moving round and round.  One day Naranathu Bhranthan (literally Narayan, the mad saint) who was a yogi with siddhis or miraculous powers came to worship at the temple.  He was surprised to see the movement of the stone. Through his yogic powers he understood the reason.  He called the temple Tantri and had a nail driven on the balikkal, chanting mantras.  The movement stopped forthwith.   The portion where the nail was thrust can be seen even today.

In order to prevent any decline in the power of the idol on account of the change in its location Naranathu Bhranthan also arranged to install two goddesses on either side of the deity-Sri Devi on the right and Bhumi Devi on the left.
