This Lord is the personification of compassion, and, whoever prays to him with genuine devotion, he grants any thing and everything. This Bhaktavasankar takes upon himself all the responsibilities and undergoes any privation in discharging the arduous tasks of his children.

In particular, this august deity liberated many upasakas as evidenced by the merging of one Zamorin in the Lord. That Zamorin prayed for Sayujyamukti; and it was granted anon. The Lord has a soft corner for genuine devotees. He undergoes tortures and even forsakes luxuries for their well being. Like kith and kin, he observes mourning at the death of the true Bhaktas. There is a practice prevalent even now, that whenever an elder Zamorin dies, it must be reported to the Lord. He observes mourning with due rituals. Ah! what a kinship between the adorer and adored! The grateful Bhaktas, remember him on auspicious occasions and offer their mite. The Maharajas of Travancore being devout Bhaktas, used to offer an elephant to the Lord, whenever a coronation for a new king was made, or on their visit to the temple. Should not earthly royalty pay obeisance to the sovereignty in the fittest manner? Moreover, in deserving cases, the Lord initiates the devotees into the mysteries of bhakti, and at times tenders jnanopadesa to the meritorious. Pleased with the highest spiritual evolution of one Raghavendra, popularly known as Siva yogi, this Lord tendered Jnanopadesa. A rarity! This divinity thus embodies several uniques that establish his spectacular sovereignty and he is living up to the name of Rajarajeswara given to him.

Location : The temple lies in Taliparamba, accessible by four wheelers from Cannanore, Kerala.
