per sthalapurana, the plantain trees in the orchids got destroyed
regularly for no reason. The owner offered to the Lord a plantain
tree made of gold. Since then, with the grace of the Lord, the trees
grew tall and in plenty. This variety of the plantain is the Naendram
vazha. The natives worship the Lord as Vamana. The grand annual
uthsav is conducted druing Onam Festival. (Avani - Tiruonam).
The plantain trees in this thalam would not yield fruits & the
farmer prayed to this Lord & offered plantains in gold. Ever
since there was good yeild of large sweet plantains & it is
beleived that these are the Nendram fruits popular in Kerala. This
gold fruit in the sannadhi went missing & the farmer doubted
and troubled a yogi. But, it was finally found in the sannadhi itself.
The yogi committted suicide & was considered to be roaming the
area as a Brahma Rakshasan. Devotees built a small temple for the
yogi & offered him daily neivaediyam to appease him.
