TIRUVANGAD PERUMAL TEMPLE

 

ARCHAMURTHI

The presiding deity although called Srirama, is a replica of Mahavishnu the common pattern found in Kerala temples. It is adorned with four arms, holding conch, disc, mace in the three arms and the fourth arm is revealing the abhaya mudra. Tradition says that Srirama assumed the very same form at the time of annihilating Khara and his demon hordes in the Dandakharanya. This belief is fortified by the disappearance of the actor playing the role of khara during the play called 'Khara Vadham' once played here. 

The actor who acted most superbly - rather lived in what role, feared the consequences of his further stay and vanished. Since then Khara Vadham is not stayed here. As the Lord of Tiruvangad is exceedingly merciful and liberal in granting boons, he is popularly known as Perumal.
