such case is seen at Amabalhapuzha Krishna Temple. This presiding deity has a
passion for palpayasam and relishes it whenever it is offered and by whom so
ever ? His adorers think of nothing except this offering on their visits.
Bhagavan Krishna, the grahita bestows boons on the datas munificently. So people
take vows to offer it to crossing the ocean of grief threatenning the tenor of
life. and redeem them with full fervour. Neither there are people sans grief,
not there is dearth in offering Palpayasam to the Lord. This has a strange
origin. Read now.
archamurthi developed a special liking for palpayasam and visitors invariably
offer this at the Ucchapuja - noon prayer, and it is an important offering at
it. Its speciality lies in a kind of sweetness that defies description. Its
origin too is fantastic. Once it so happened the Thampuran, the local lord to
meet an emergency borrowed some paddy from a brahmin, living in the
nearby Thalavady village. but it was not returned as promised. The brahmin
lacking in politeness demanded Thampuran to clear off the longstanding debt
forthwith. when the Thampuran visited the temple for prayers. The Thampuran
ordering the minister for immediate clearance, left the premises.
