The History Behind Sree Ramaswami Temple
The origin of this Sree Ramaswami Temple is mysterious. According to the Kerala Mahatmyam, this temple was constructed by Lord Parashuram. There is ample evidence that this temple is about 2000 years old. According to a legend, this temple was consecrated by a sage named Svetharshi.
Legend has it that Agastya Muni was on his way to the river for his customary bath when he encountered two demons named Neela and Shweta. Agastya Muni cursed them. At the request for his penance, Agastya Muni advised him to perform penance in two Shiva temples. The place where Neela performed tapas became known as Nileshwaram. Shweta did penance at Tiruvangad. They later came to be known as Nilarshi and Swarthi.
It is said that Svetharshi consecrated Shiva temple and Vishnu temple at the place where he performed penance. It is believed that the Shiva established by Shwetarshi was extremely fierce, so another Shiva temple was anointed right in front of him to calm his anger. Now the temple complex has two Shiva temples facing each other to the north and a large Shri Ram temple to the south. There is also a slightly different version of the mythology, in which it is said that the Shiva temple was consecrated by Nilarshi – a devotee of Shiva, and the Shri Ram temple was consecrated by Vishnu devotee Shwetarshi.
