TIRUVANGAD PERUMAL TEMPLE

 

THE MIRACLE OF EASTERN TOWER

Later, when Tippusultan's thirst for expansion led, him to this part of Kerala, it tasted his fury. The Prakara, Gopuram etc. came to ground level. Destruction fortunately could not go beyond that; for, it is believed that when the army made the Eastern gopuram as its target a big bullet from the temple came and hit the very same canon that fired and immobilized it. Poor Tippu, fearing the divine wrath made a shameful retreat. 

What is he after all, before the Omnipotent, who floored Dasakantha, the lifter of Kailas mount? The place where from Tippu fought is now known as perum porkalam - a standing historic evidence of Srirama's invincibility and successful dushtasikshana. The very spot is used for the Pallivetta the hunting ground for the deity during, the annual Utsavam.
