LORD RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

 

ANTIQUITY

Of the treatises embodying rich corpus of valuable information regarding the origin of this temple, Kerala Mahatmya comes in handly to reconstruct its former glory. The temple's sanctity originates from the, holy head of Sati, and it was enriched by the three lingas given by Lord Siva at different times. So it dates back to the vedic times and begins in Kailas and ends at Dhaksha yagna. The highly conceited Dhaksha Prajapati, father of Sati and father-in-law of Lord Siva performed a great yagna with ulterior motives. 

Fie invited the Mukkoti devathas except Lord Siva, despite being yagnabhokta - one entitled to receive the yagnapala by virtue of his position among the Trio. Lord Siva swallowed the dishonor. When Sati desired to attend the yagna, he refused permission showing valid reasons; yet Sati went to teach her father a lesson. She was humiliated in the presence of all gods. Infuriated Sati burnt herself in yogagni. Hearing the heart- rending news, he sent Virabhadra to destroy all.
