ANNADANA PRABHU OF VAIKOM

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

The story goes that Parasuram is the chief architect of temple's enviable history and the spread of its immaculate glory. According to belief, he once saw by accident from above in his flight to North, a bright linga in knee deep water. Coming down straight at the spot, he embraced it thrilled by its unearthly splendour. Envisioning the cause of its emergence and its bright future, he started building a grand temple around a square dais, he made then anon to install the linga according to Sankarshana rites.

Soon after completion, he employed devout priests for the conduct of pujas and to promote devotional cult through several pujas and Utsavas. He enjoined then that whosoever worships the Lord during the Ashtami Festival with a bilwa leaf or any denomination of coin, or lighting up of lamp certainly gets liberation and enjoys heavenly bliss during his sojourn in the world. He built up various traditions for the conduct of every activity in the temple including Annadana.
