AMBAZHAPUZHA KRISHNA

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Just at the conclusion, the Thampuran saw the divine hand extended to bless him. At once, he gave away his kingdom to the Lord and ruled the country as god's vice - regent, assuming the sublime name of Devanarayan. Besides, he proclaimed that his successors too would follow suit. In fact, they kept up the word. Unfortunately, after Thampuran's demise, when Marthanda Varma defeated the last ruler he surrendered himself to the victor after placing the keys of treasury and granary at the feet of Lord Parthasarathi. 

Noble was the proclamation! Nobler was the implementation!! And noblest was the tradition they left behind!!! Krishnalilas are strange. This deity thus became superior politically and spiritually too. And he protected the sanctity of Lord Guruvayurappan image during the invasion of Tippu Sultan in 1790 too. The priests of Guruvayur temple realizing the infinite powers of the Lord brought Balakrishna's image for safe custody and concealed it in a room. It remained safe, and to mark this, the spot is called Guruvayupurambalam. Devotees pray to this place too.
