TALIPARAMBA TEMPLE - SOVEREIGNTY OF RAJARAJESWARA

Read the following for full comprehension of the imperial status maintained by Rajarajeswara - represented by the majestic Sivalinga at Taliparamba temple.

The temple is quite unique in enshrining that compassionate incarnate in the form of Rajarajeswara and receiving rituals befitting his exalted position. This temple, perhaps to be in tune with the status of the Lord and to justify the honorific title, is putting in practice many of the imperial customs accompanying the majesty of his sovereignty. It is here scholars and literary men of great eminence were honoured as they are done by emperors, the patrons of arts and crafts; it is to this temple Bhargavarama brought 15,000 brahimins for conducting uninterrupted pujas on the lines of Agamas; it was this temple's priest who exercised spiritual and secular powers, like Mahasamrat; it is this temple sanactified by Srirama's visit on his way back home with Sita; it is this place deemed the only holiest spot without cremation ground and hence the fittest to install the Sivalinga given to Mandhata by Lord Siva-, and it is this place made sacrosanct on three different occasions; it is this presiding deity observing mourning at the death of Zamorins, since the Sayujyamukti attained by one devout Zamorin in the dim past; it is to this temple every pregnant woman comes to worship for the blessings of high status to the child to be born; it is here MOTHER Sati's head fell, when Lord Mahavishnu cut her corpse, carried by Lord Siva after her self - immolation; it is this archamurthi who sent black cobras and hooded serpents to scare away the soldiers of Tippu and bit the army chief who withdrew without further attack: it is here naiamrut puja is very popular; it is this temple that banned admission of women for worship during day and allows them after night puja and it is one of the Siva temples drawing thesists since time immorial . It was called by two more names - Perinjellur and Lakshmipuram.
