TIRUVANGAD - SRI RAMA TEMPLE 
DORRIL, THE BRITISH OFFICER

HYDERALI & TIPPUS DISGRACEFUL RETREAT

The Miracle of Eastern Tower:

Later, when Tippu Sultan's thirst for expansion led him to the part of Kerala, it tasted his fury. It is not due to his irreverence to the sacred shrine, but his eye was on the huge wealth of the temple. 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 was aiming it and immobilized it. How can it happen? Whose act was it? Couldn't the presiding deity protect his own abode? He did with a mere grave look. Poor Tippu, fearing the divine wrath made a shameful retreat. For, he knew perfectly well that the All-powerful and ever-benevolent Lord would not tolerate wickedness go on unhampered. What is he after all. before the omnipotent, who floored Dasakanta, the lifter of Kailas mount? The place where from Tippu fought is now known as Perumporkalam - a standing historic evidence of Sri Rama's invincibility and successful dushtasikshana. The very spot is used for the Pallivetta - the hunting ground for the deity during the annual utsavam. This historic truth could never be hood-winked nor brushed aside as trash. Nor even be deemed figment of imagination. History with date-wise representation proves it. But, the so called modern maharshis seeing it through their coloured glasses denigrate the divine intervention and ridicule the pious children of God. For, they are highly progressive honourable gentleman.
