AMBAZHAPUZHA KRISHNA

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

They did nothing; so God reached the spot safe, and the Thampuran who was on the tip toe of expectation received the image with all rituals due and it was taken to the newly-built temple ceremoniously. This exciting event took place on the Moolam day of Mithunam falling in June - July. 

A boat race on a grand scale is held every year to commemorate this great event at Champakulam. The image thus acquired, was installed at a propitious time on Thiruvanam day in Mithunam in 1613 A.D. The Thampuran's dream came true. And since then, it is receiving prayers by lakes of people round the year.

Another spectacular event took place in this great kshetra. During the conversation with Bilwamangalaswamiyar, Thampuran earnestly entreated him to show him Bhagawan Krishna. When questioned what would he offer, if he could see Krishna in flesh and blood, the Thampuran unhesitatingly announced that he would offer his whole kingdom to God. Realizing his sincerity and piety the Swamiyar said 'Yes'. On the next day special pujas were performed, with the Swamiyar officiating as priest.
