DARBHASAYANAM

Since then, this place has become sacred and known as Pullaranyam Kshetram. Sri Rama in his search for his consort Sita and in his effort to bridge the gulf to Lanka was perplexed how to overcome the natural obstacle, the sea. He laid himself on the
bed of the sacred grass for three days and nights in deep meditation. In answer, Sri Adi Jagannatha appeared before Sri Rama, handed him the weapon of victory, called Divya Chapa, and blessed him with success.

Adi Setu, where Sri Rama commenced the Setubandhan, is three miles south of this Kshetra. The presiding deity in the temple
is Adi Jagannatha. With his divine consort Sri Padmasani Tayar and Darbhasayana Rama. Sri Rama, on his return from Lanka and after the Linga Pratishtha at Rameswaram, visited Adi Setu to bathe in the sea and ward off the evil effects of Brahmahatya committed by his slaying of
Ravana, the Brahmin. After visiting Adi Setu, Sri Rama stopped his Pushpaka Vimana at Darbhasayanam, to show his consort Sita the place of his fast and penance and the place where he received the divine weapon.
