TIRUVANGAD PERUMAL TEMPLE

 

HISTORICITY

The temple enjoyed uninterrupted unlimited sway since its inception - the administration was carried on without friction of any kind, due to implementation of well established traditions and agamic injunctions. But the trouble erupted in the eighteenth century, exactly in 1750 when the combined forces of Kolathunad, Kottayam and Kaduthanad invaded Tellucherry fort, disgusted by the wicked maneuvers of Dorril, the British officer. 

They succeeded in capturing several strategic points including Tiruvangad; and it was freed from the foreign menace for some time. But trouble came when Haidar Ali marched his army in 1766 into North Kerala and occupied Chirakkal. The frightened people along with royal family took refuge in the temple. All were safe. Did not Rama extend asylum to Vibhusan? Would Saranarthas be ever left in the lurch?
