|The Rajarajeshawara temple, also near Taliparamba, is one of the important Shiva temples of the region. The massive boundary walls and the two-tiered pyramidal roof capture your attention the instant you reach the temple premises. A unique feature of the temple, believed to have been built by the Mooshika king, Sapasoman, is the absence of a flagstaff.
It is also believed that after eight in the evening, Lord Shiva is present in the temple along with Goddess Parvathy and that during this time, they will grant the wishes of women devotees. Hence, women are allowed to enter the temple only after eight pm.
Performances of traditional art forms like the Koodiyattam and the Chakyarkoothu are held here regularly. The scholar body of the temple used to give the Veera sringhala, a token of their appreciation, to great artistes. Koodiyattom maestro Mani Madhava Chakyar is one of the many artistes who were presented with the Veera sringhala here.
