TIRUVIL WAMALA - THE SEAT OF RAMA & LAKSHMANA

 

ANTIQUITY 

The Vilwadrimahatmya, a famous sanskrit treatise furnishing an elaborate account of this divya kshetra establishes the origin of Mulavirat. As the legend goes, Parasurama with a view to liberating his parents Renuka-Jamadagni prayed to Lord Siva to helping him in the selection of spot for performance of pitrukarmas. Satisfied with the pious intention, Lord Siva appearing before, gave him the idol of Mahavishnu he was adorning since long and said that the place fit for the installation of this august image would be right place for conducting pitru Karmas. Taking the sacred image he set out in quest of right spot. 

Attracted by the myriad splendors of the lovely Amala trees surroundings the Vilwadri, he chose it for installation. Building a beautiful shrine befitting the august image, obtained from Lord Siva, he consecrated it with due rituals. And employed learned priests for the conduct of regular and occasional pujas. And then offered several elaborate ritualistic prayers for the liberations of parents. Gratified by the sanctity of the hill temple, he stayed here for sometime absorbed in various temple activities.
