Sri Purushamangalam Temple is a centuries-old and historic temple located in the small village of Piravom Kakkad in the Ernakulam district of Kerala, India.
The place where the temple is located was a dense forest on the banks of the river Pullanthipuzha in ancient times. The scythe of a Harijan woman, who was mowing the lawn and gathering firewood in this forest, struck a stone. Blood gushed from the stone. It was an idol, not a stone. What the young woman saw from the panic was an illusion. A vast spectacle in which a thousand suns and moons come together to obscure the entire horizon in the light of day, which the mind cannot imagine or analyze with the intellect. Terrified, the Harijan woman turned around and alerted the landlord through the clerk.
Because when they arrived there with their entourage, they saw the glorious and beautiful Sripurushan.
"Who are you? How are you here?" Have you seen the monster? ”Hundreds of thousands of questions in one breath.
Sripurushan's reply was "Close your eyes and remember me, turn your face to where I am standing".
Because they saw the real Lord Krishna in the form of Lord Purusha. He prostrated himself before the Lord.
Suddenly the figure rose to the infinity of the sky as a halo. And a body like this:-
"Build us a temple here. Set up our wounded idol. Our cosmic form appeared before that young woman. It is the same cosmic form we showed Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra.
Soon a temple was built at this place and the same idol of the wounded was erected there. Later the temple and its surroundings came to be known as Sripurushamangalam.
As time goes on. The temple was frequently damaged and the poojas were regularly interrupted. Disasters such as massacre in the country. The temple was on the verge of complete destruction.
In 2009 a new governing body took over the temple and through Devaprasnam Brahmashree Kaimukku Narayanan Namboothiri's problem thinking, the governing body was able to revive the temple. With the renovation of the bowl in 2010 and the rededication, the ancient rituals were restored. According to the Bhagavad Gita, the same idol was erected at the time of re-dedication
