deep study of this august person will be rejuvenating, elevating and rewarding to
every one, regardless of a wide variety of limitations. He is the creator and
sustainer of Kerala. No where his fervour for religious awakening surfaced as it
did at Tiru- Siva-Perur, the shortened soulless Anglicised form of Trichur. It
is here his ardour for spiritual glorification of the land reached the zenith
and made him a polestar among the nation - builders. It is on account of his
deep mediation, there emerged the image of Mahavishnu, Sivalinga, and
Sankaranarayana - a combined from Siva and Vishnu.
Though almost all temples of
Kerala are bearing the imprints of his zeal for religious regeneration, this
temple besides enshrining those images is retaining many vestiges in the form of
Vedikas and rituals. Without modification. It is his gift and the best one at
it. Among the uniques that the temple boasts, the archamurthis in all four main
srikoils deserve first mention.
