LORD RAJARAJESWARA OF TALIPARAMBA

 

THE TEMPLE

The sacred shrine though embodying several uniques, is neither huge in dimensions, nor rich in possession of properties. The temple property is indeed comparatively limited, although its spiritual superiority and imperial sovergnity are unmatched and unprecedented. Its inner grandeur outshines the outer adornments. It is modest in size, yet, possesses all the requisites. Although it has a modest prakara and gopuram, the courtyard is vast and the Srikoil too is extremely beautiful. 

The garbhagriha is quadrangular in shape and is surrounded by two roofs and the whole structure has a pyramidal roof. Just opposite this imposing Srikoil lies the Namaskaramandapa built with sloped roof and two projecting gables at the end. Here one finds certain, oddities - this temple has no flag staff and the Srikoil is adorned with only one stupi, whereas the Namaskara mandap has three. The Balikal is roofless, bur is embellished by a strange figure, with a stranger face evoking strangest guesses, if examined to fix its form. There stands in front of the balikkal a small rectangular building adorned with a pyramidal roof. And it is another oddity that greet the eyes.
