Temple History :

The famous Lord Sri Rama temple is located at Triprayar in Thrissur district of Kerala. The deity Lord Sri Rama in the Triprayar Temple is popularly known as Triprayarappan or Triprayar Thevar. The idol of Lord Sri Rama was initially worshiped by Lord Krishna at Dwaraka. After the Swargarohana of Lord Sri sKrish, the idol was immersed in the Arabian sea. Later some fishermen got the idol from the sea near Chettuva region of Kerala and the local ruler Vakkayil Kaimal constructed a temple at Triprayar and installed the idol here. The image of Rama (Triprayar Thevar) resembles the Chaturbhuja Sri Maha Vishnu form(Chaturbhuja means with 4 arms) bearing a conch(Panchajanya), a disc (Sudarsana), a bow (Kodanda) and a garland respectively. It is believed that the deity worshiped here possesses some of the aspects of Lord Shiva too. It was after killing the asura, Khara, that Sri Rama got both the Shaiva and Vaishnava aspects. Thus Triprayar Thevar is also called Khara Samhara Moorthy. It is also believed that the portrayal of Rama with a garland held in the image’s hand is also suggestive of aspects of Brahma and hence the deity is said to be a manifestation of the TriMoorthy. Images of Sridevi and Bhudevi are on either side. There is an image of Dakshinamoorthy, in the sanctum facing the south. Dakshinamoorthy is commonly found in Shiva temples.

The original idol of Lord Sri Rama was subject to severe wear with the passage of time. Astrological investigations, however, revealed that the Lord did not desire to have a change of the Vigraha. Therefore a raiment was made in Panchaloha and the same now covers the original stone image. Triprayar temple is rich in wood carvings. The Sree Koval is circular in shape with a copper covered conical roof and is surmounted by a golden Thazhikakkudam. The circular sanctum has several sculptural representations of scenes from the Ramayana with a dynamic and lively vitality of design and forms a lavish decoration and an integral part of the architectural edifice of the temple. Its walls are decorated with beautiful mural paintings.

The temple is located on the bank of a river which gives a great view from the other bank. This temple is the most beautiful and peaceful place for devotees who want to perform yoga and meditation. Along with lord Sri Rama, there are sub deities Lord Hanuman, Lord Ganesha, Lord Dakshina Moorthy, and Lord Ayyappa gives a great darshan in separate shrines.
