RAMAVATAR KSHETRAS IN KERALA

Trichur - Sri Rama Ambalam

This Nandikeswar kshetra, not withstanding its immense popularity as a Saiva kshetra is also housing mangy mandirs for Vaishnavate deities too. It was all due to Bhagawan Parasuram's tapahphala - result of penance. Propitiating Lord Siva, he sat in meditation and to his surprise he found the graceful image of Chaturbhuja Mahavishnu adorning his hands with disc, conch, mace and lotus. Again started for the darsan of Iord Siva, but found two image, - one was that of Rama and the other Siva. Dissatisfied, he made another attempt and found the image of Sankaranarayana flanked by Rama one side and Siva on the other. Though confounded, he realized later to his infinite joy that there exists no difference between Siva and Vishnu, both are same and each is as powerful and as important as the other. Gratified, he commenced building temples for these deities - Lord Siva, Lord Rama and Ford Sankara Narayana. Hence these three are now in this holy kshetra.

The two-storied temple for Sri Rama is located to the south end of the Sri Koil of Vadakkunathan temple. It is facing west, like that of the Lord Siva's shrine. The icon of Sri Rama is quite majestic with four hands adorned with sudarsana chakra, sankha, koumodaka and the fully blossomed tamara. Abhisheka with oil alone is offered, unlike ghee in the Vadakkunathan shrine. The idol laden with colourful garlands and shining gold ornaments appears extremely radiant, lit by the flickering oil
lamps around.

It lies in Trichur town itself, accessible by train and bus.
