idol of Rama was subject to evere Wear with the passage of time. Astrological
investigations however revealed that the Lord did not desire to have change of the
vigraha. Therefore a raiment was made in Panchaloha and the same now covers the
original stone image.
It is a beautiful image, the face beaming with a sweet smile, the neck radiant with the
Koustubha ornament, the chest charming with the Srivatsa mark and the body shining with
necklaces, shoulder bracelets and bangles and garlands. Indeed one cannot take one's eyes
off easily and those who had darshan once would want to come again and again. The temple
itself, situated close to the river and amidst gracefully swaying palms and various other
trees, has a unique charm that is captivating.
