Ameda Temple History

Lord Parasurama once travelling through the western coast of India, incidentally reached the place where the temple is presently situated. As usual he stepped into the lake for ‘Sandhyavandana’ during sunset .Then he saw a bright light at a distance. Curiosity to know about the source of light prompted him to walk forward toward the center of the lake. Suddenly divine knowledge came to him that the origin of the light is ‘Sapthamathrukkal’ who were travelling through the lake on the top of the tortoise.

Meanwhile the tortoise had become unable to travel as the water had paved way for Lord Parasurama who was moving towards the centre of the lake. The place where the tortoise became standstill came to be known as ‘Amaninnayidam’ and later on become ‘Ameda’. Since his spurt of movement towards the centre of the lake caused the stillness of the tortoise and thereby the stoppage of the journey of the ‘Sapthamathrukkal’, Lord Parasurama decided to construct a magnificent temple at the same place where the tortoise stopped its travel. And hence the Ameda temple came into its being at its present position.

Ameda Mana History

The family reached Ameda about 600 years ago. The myth about the voyage of the Mangalam family for reaching Ameda and settling there is also an interesting one. The story starts with a Namboodiri family lived at a place named ‘Vettam’ in a village called ‘Sukapura’ which was situated at the North West parts of Kerala.

In the course of time, the brothers of the family quarreled with each other resulting the elder brother and his family leaving the house. Through Tripangode, Thirunavaya, Guruvayoor, Vadakkunnathan, Triprayaar, Kodungaloor, Tripunithura, they reached Chottanikkara.

After coming to know about the financial problems of the Brahmana, the ‘Pallipurathu Namboodiri family’ who managed Chottanikkara temple, gave a house for them to live.
