LORD RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

 

He too entered in his fiercest aspect and put to destruction' all that could done to carrying the corpse of Sati. He started then Pralaya nritya when the cosmos fluttered threatening total-collapse. Then Lord Mahavishnu appeared and cut the corpse with his Sudarsan so artfully that the bearer knew not the process. The dissected body fell at different places. The head of Mother Sati fell here and made the spot sacred; and later became a Saktipita of great importance.

After some centuries one famous Sage Mandatha by name pleased the Lord with his deep penance. Giving him one-of the three lingas, he presented to Mother Parvathi for worship, Lord Siva advised him to install it at a place where there was no cremation ground. The sage after an intense search all over the land, came to Taliparamba and installed the Sivalinga as it fulfilled the condition laid down: He worshipped it ardently, and after his death the Linga disappeared mysteriously. 

Muchikund, his devout son propitiated Lord Maheswar and got another linga. This too vanished after some centuries. Satasoman, a famous king of Mushaka dynasty at the instance of Sage Agasya did penance and obtained from Lord Siva a linga on pleasing him with his austere tapas. He built a temple and installed. Thus the three lingas came to this sacred land.
