LORD OF VAIKOM

Parashurama also brought Brahmins for the performance of puja and established the various rites to enhance the divinity of the idol. It was he who also arranged for the conduct of the Ashtami festival. It is enjoined that whoever offers a bilwa leaf or ar coin or a lamp on the is liberated in this world and the next.

Flawlessly Finished

This is how Ronal Bernier describes Vaikom to "in a spacious green setting that is almost empty of diary building the temple appears flawlessly finished. Temple is elliptical. It is topped with a cone-shaped roof that is absolutely geometrical, covered with coppar and crowned by a dazzling gold stupi. The height of tala or wall is barely one-third that of the colossal And the total effect is one of pure form in space."
