TALIPARAMBA - RAJARJESWARA AMBALAM

This ancient temple has the special privilege of investing imperial powers to Lord Siva and conducting rituals befitting to the status of emperor of emperors. The Niradambara smasanavasi Siva blesses the saranagathas in the most dignified, magnificent manner that stands out spectacular form the rest of temples. Its legends are numerous and the splendour of its aura is imperious.

The unique feature of this temple -- it is enshrining a big size Sivalinga of that compassionate incarnate in the name of Rajarajeswara and observing rituals befitting His exalted position. This temple, perhaps to be in tune with the status of the Lord and 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; besides it is this temple's- Lord that tendered Jnanopadesa to Sivayogi; it is to this temple Bhargavarama brought 15000 brahmins for conducting uninterrupted pujas on the line of Agamas; it was this temple's priest who exercised spiritual and secular powers like Mahasamrat at it were; it is this temple sanctified by Sri Rama'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 with the three lingas given to different bhaktas by Lord Siva on different occasions.
