MOTHER RAJARAJESWARI OF CHOTTANIKARA

 

Do the Springs of devotion ever go dry? Every pain ends in gain. Ordeals always display the inner worth. He served the Goddess meritoriously till his death, and built up new traditions for future Trustees. After his demise in 1064 AD, the Cochin Government took over the administration of the temple. As the rulers were reputed theists, they made many improvements and attended to renovation programmes periodically. 

It is among their reign, Srikoil, Nalambalam, golden flag-staff, anapandal, Bhajanpura, Mandapam etc. received full attention. They breathed full fresh life into every segment of temple administration. No wonder the regal touch it received made it surpass many other ancient temples of the state. After Independence, its administration was passed on to some Dewaswom Board. 

Whoever manages, or however it is managed, its glory never diminishes as long as MOTHER Rajarajeswari's benign looks screen the victims from the evil spirits. Though there are similar shrines in Kerala famous in this respect, they pale into insignificance before this august MOTHER and so she ties her position next to that of the Guruvayur temple among the temples of Kerela. Now step into the sanctum to see for yourself what the Goddess is possessing and what kind of sports she is playing with the possessing devils.
