PHEDE - PARASURAM TEMPLE  

The scene of action takes us to Maharashtra, exactly to the holy kshetra dedicated to Parasuram, the seventh incarnation of Sri Mahavishnu. The oddity rather awe-inspiring history, of this temple is it was built by a Muslim lady, whose boundless faith in him not only enabled her to retrieve her fortune, but helped the theist Hindus to be proud of an excellent independent exclusive shrine for Parasuram. 

The principal actors of this most fascinating drama among the humans is an illustrious woman and Lord Parasuram, of course is the protagonist and director of this spectacular drama. The time of action is in the early eighteenth century, although the temple's existence can be pushed back to earlier times. But the eighteenth century witnessed its glory reaching zenith and since then its fame is mounting higher. 

It acquired now the status of one of the premier pilgrim centres of Bharat standing on par with the world renowned yatrasthalas like Varanasi. Another feature that flashes across the mind, when this august avatara purusha is-his contribution to the spread of theism in Kerala can never estimated by any means whatsoever. But neither a befitting shrine was built, nor due reverence is accorded to his monumental part played there. Well! it is better to conclude that ennobling virtue of gratitude is sadly lacking in that state and its people.
