SRIRAMA'S TEMPLE - TRIPRAYAR

 

ANTIQUITY

The uniqueness of Triprayar Rama Temple arises from the very august balikal along with the. archamurthi found and enshrined by Vakkaimal - a local chieftain of inimitable dedication. According to the legend, the devout Kaimal was informed by certain mysterious persons that there lay washed ashore four sacrosanct idols of Sri Mahavishnu and he must undertake the responsibility of installing them at four holy places, befitting their stature, lusture, gesture etc., with Vedic injunctions. It was in a dream. 

Waking up atone, he went to seashore with his men and found to his inexplicable delight four beautifully sculptured replicas of Sri Mahavishnu adorned with four hands, but with different facial expressions. Being a devotee of rare type he made immediate consultations with the pandits of agamas and installed one at Irijilakuda in a temple built naming the deity as Bharata, benefiting the facial expression peculiar to that statue.
