Speciality of Sri Parasuramar Temple, Thiruvallam

Sage Parasurama is the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. This is an incarnation to establish rule of discipline in life. It so happened that his mother Renuka Devi gazed at a lad appreciating his handsomeness. Suspecting her fidelity, Sage Jamadagni ordered his son Parasurama to behead his mother, which he executed as he could not disobey the father. Yet with the power of the boon he had from father Jamadagni, Parasurama restored his mother to life. He was a classic archer and was unconquerable. Parasu-axe was his weapon. He took a vow to destroy the royal dynasties (Kshatriya) entirely as a king killed his father (Jamadagni). It was during this time, Lord Vishnu took His Ramavatara. Parasurama understood who Rama was. He surrendered all his archery skill with the respective Mantras attached to them and retired to penance. The rough place he cured with his axe is the Kerala of today. It is also noteworthy that Sage Parasurma is one among the seven immortals (Chiranjeevis). Others are, Ashwatama, Mahabali, Sage Vyasa, Sri Anjaneya, Krupa and Vibishana according to scriptures. The Sanskrit sloka runs, “Ashwatama Balir Vyasa Hanumanascha Vibishanah Krupa Parasuramascha Sathethe Chiranjeevi Namah. The place where Parasurama worshipped Lord bears his foot prints.
