resurrected the image of Vishnu and breathed fresh life into the
temple. He regularized the temple functions and routine pujas.
Besides, he appointed the priests and entrusted the temple
administration to the Asthamangalathu Moothathu. His services opened
a new chapter in the history of temple, and once again the Lord
started blessing the adorers as in the past.
After some centuries,
the Ettomnesseri - eight Illoms took over administration and
conducted temple activities to the satisfaction of asthika
community. In 1542 AD the temple received renovation and it was
chiefly done by a Pandyan king by name Chandra Bhaskara, who
according to belief attended to rebuilding on a grand scale many of
the parts, either dilapidated, or nearing that state, soon after the
miraculous cure of his affliction - release from evil spirits. It is
during that period, the temple acquired that celebrated lamp,
burning bright now.
