SRI VADAKKUNATHAN OF TRICHUR

 

THE MYSTERIOUS RISHABHA

There lies a beautiful huge image of Rishabha at the main entrance to the Nalambalam. It is also an object of worship, since it is the Vahana of Lord Siva. Normally the image of the mount of the principal deity is installed straight opposite the Mulavirat. 

The tradition is common and universal, but here it is not so. Here the Lord's vahana is at the main entrance for a background fantastic, and purpose well intentioned. In the dim past, a youthful ascetic visited the temple. He was a great Sivabhakta. Contented with surroundings exuding divinity, he decided to stay here meditating on Vedakkunathan. He did with a difference.
