is one more version recounting the installating of Sridevi and Bhudevi in the
Srikoil, and it is attributed to Bilwamangalathu Swamiyar. During his worship on
his visit to the temple, he found to his ecstatic joy, Sridevi and Bhudevi
entering through the western door and worshipping the archamurthi. To set right
the fault of installation of the archamurthi, he made arrangements for the
installation of the Goddesses on either side and also closing of western gate
with a view to making the goddesses remain confined to the Srikoil alone. Hence
the closure of western gate then, and they are not flung open since then. How
strange is the tradition! What a devotion to the divinities? Are not they
strange? As it is strange, so is the tradition.
The temple lies in Triprayar, accessible by four wheelers from Trissur, Kerala.
