 SRI RAMA TEMPLE AT TIPRAYAR

Though the deity is in the Vishnu form, in the srikoil itself there is an image of Dakshinamoorti facing south, which is commonly found in Siva temples.  There is also a lamp behind the image which is kept burning all the time.  Because of these and also because of the fact that people got relief when troubled by evil spirits chathan-the deity is believed to have a Siva aspect also.

It was after killing the asura, Khara that Sri Rama got both the Saiva and Vaishnava  aspects.   Thus some pundits are of the opinion that the Pratishta here is that of Rama after killing Khara.
