VAIKOM - ANANDA PRABHU AMBALAM

The Lord reveals Himself here in three aspects everyday. During the mornings, He is decorated as Dhakshinamurthi -- the giver of wisdom, and the pujas offered now is called Panthirathi puja. Darsan of this Jnanswarupa makes the adorers wise and sharp-witted. In the - noons, He appears in the form of Kirata -- the fabled hunter who tested the might of Arjuna before bestowing Pasupatastra. Those who desire earthly advancement propitiate him with great fervour. Abhishekam of any kind is highly desirable. In the evenings, He gives darsan of Satchidananda. As this form exudes ananda, it is the auspicious moment for submitting long petitions for success of everything. All and sundry throng at this hour. So the temple is always crowded from early morning till late in the evening. As the Lord developed preference for granting liberally all types of boons, the temple has been attracting thousands since the Tretayuga. Moreover, the free meal scheme has virtually converted it into a Dharmasala, and so, the Lord is reverentially addressed as the Anna dana Mahaprabhu.

It lies 15 km off Ettamanur, another Mahadev temple cited and enjoys bus and train facilities.
