LORD RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

 
Sublimity seems bending its head in shame at the simplicity stationed in him. He is the very blessedness from whom springs up equanimity and tranquility. He resents ostentation and shuns pomp, the indispensable constituents of regality and exalted status. To keep himself off their glow and glitter, perhaps, he preferred the inaccessible and unaffordable highest peaks for his residence. But to see him adorning dazzling diamond decked. crown to match with the shimmering silks covering from throat to feet, staggers comprehension. 

The very thought seems absurd. It is fantastic and incredible. None reconciles with such form, nor readily approaches him for a look, much less adoration. But there is one holy place, where he is appearing as the emperor of emperors, and lo! is receiving imperial honors too. He is hailed as Rajarajeswara, and is exercising sovereignty unlimited. It is in the holy temple at Taliparamba. Needless to prolong that it is in Kerala. The genius of Kerala has created several uniques and wrested many trophies in the realm of religion. This unique tradition tops the list of creditable innovations introduced in temple culture.     

The temple at Taliparamba is quite unique in enshrining that compassionate incarnate in the form of Rajarajeswara and observing rituals befitting his exalted position. This temple, perhaps to be in tune with the status of the Lord and justify the honorific title, is putting in practice many of the imperial customs accompanying the majesty of his sovereignty.
