The two Srikoils of Tiruvilvamala, dedicated to Sri Rama and his brother Lakshmana Introduction

E. M. Forster in his celebrated A Passage to India wrote: "India is the country-fields, fields, then hills, jungle, hills and more fields". I was reminded of this while travelling from Palghat to Tiruvilwamala by an early morning bus. Unlike the coastal belt of Kerala which abounds in lagoons and coconut palms, 'the landscape this side of the State is dominated by hills, paddy fields and palmyra trees.

Tiruvilwamala is an important temple, consisting of two shrines side by side-one dedicated to Rama and the other to his brother Lakshmana. It is a mountain shrine easily accessible by road on the west side. The eastern side consists of a series of mountains which one has to trek to reach the temple. The place is in Thalapalli Taluk in Trichur District. It is 29 km. from Trichur and 20 km. from Palghat and is well served by frequent bus services.
