The Mulavirat representing Rajarajeswara in the form of linga is about three feet in height. The decoration, particularly with philander lends ethereal charms and heightens its dignity. The artful expert decoration of making the eyes prominently broad on either side of the well-cut nose heightens the grandeur of the image and gives a royal banquet to the eyes. None takes off his look instantly; but rivets his gaze to enjoy the thrills passing the spires at the grand sight of this Rajarajeswara. The resplendent charms of the Lord linger longer in the minds of the viewers, even after leaving the temple. It beckons visits numerous any prayers multifarious. Indeed it inspired and ignited the slumbering creative instincts in eminent poets too. Thoroughly lost in the enjoyment of rare bliss, the icon of Rajarajeswara radiating from His mesmerizing beauty, .one Uddanda Sastri,a great poet fell into ecstatic raptures and composed marvelous poems on the spot. His rhapsody reflects the infinite joy he experienced at the sight of that captivating icon. Though this Nirgunopasaka used to stand and see every archamurti in the temple visited, he never either joined his palms nor uttered a single word in praises icons. This Rajarajeswara not only made him raise his hands in veneration, but opened his mouth in composition of verses in his praise. Prostrations to thee  Rajarajeswara for teaching the superiority of Sagunopasana over Nirgunopasana. His imperial majesty bends the unbendable thus, but never it bent before any. It contains all the component parts of temple like, dwajasthambha, gopura, garbha griha etc., and above all is built amidst Nature's bounteous green and so attracts the bhaktas most.

It is about 2 km off the bus stand and the railway station of the town of Taliparamba in Kerala.
