LORD OF VAIKOM

Incidentally, it isthe ashes of this kitchen on the northeast corner of the nalambalam that is served as Vibhuti to devotees visiting the temple.

Even the cutting of vegetables here is an art. It is a task undertaken hereditarily by a group of sixteen Nair families. Once a member of the royal family found three or four bunches of big bananas being carried away from the temple store. Suspecting theft, he called the persons. To his surprise they were only peels left intact after removing the kernel with dexterity for making chips. The Raja was pleased at their artistic skill and gave them gifts.

Once the saint Vilwamangalam came to Vaikom for darshan. He could not find Bhagawan in the sanctum. He therefore walked around and found him having his meals on the raised platform on the northern side of the garbhagriha. None other than Parvati was serving him. This spot is still hold sacred, called Manyasthanam, where a plantain leaf is laid with all dishes served during feasts and a lamp lit.
