SRIRAMA'S TEMPLE - TRIPRAYAR

 

THE TEMPLE

This famous temple, thus come into existence is one of the most attractive temples of Kerala. Its architectural marvels and mystical powers have succeeded in attracting devotees through out the year. The Srikoil is circular in shape and with its indispensable conical roof adorning with stupi, it casts great charm on the visitors. In the mandapa called Namaskara mandapa, the artistry of sculptors strikes the eye and drives home several morals through the episodes efficiently sculptured. It has 24 panels. 

The mural paintings too are a class in themselves. The sculptured figures with their grace and excellences serve a feast to the art-critics. Leaving the garbha griha, after prayers, the devotees go straight to the Sasta shrine lying in the southern side of the courtyard. There is a belief current here that this temple was dedicated to Ayyappa prior to the consecration of Srirama's idol. As his seat was given to Srirama, he moved to the present southern place, just as Edathedathu Kavu Bhagawati moved to the Northern side at Guruvayur temple after the advent of Balakrishna.
