This web site is dedicated to Lord Shri Rama temple in Chitor (Chitoor)(Chittur),Palakkad (Palghat),Kerala in India. The temple located in TekheGramam (South Village) in Chittur is unique for the "Kalyana Rama" form. In this 'rupam' (form) you see Lord Rama's consort Sita on his right hand side. Almost in all Rama temples you see Lakshmana to Rama's right and Sita on Lord Rama's left. This is one of the unique features of the temple.
Lord Rama is the seventh incarnation or avatara of MahaVishnu. Rama is the perfect avatar of the Supreme Protector Vishnu, and is an all-time favorite among Hindu deities. The most popular symbol of chivalry and virtue, Rama - in the words of Swami Vivekananda is "the embodiment of truth, of morality, the ideal son, the ideal husband, and above all, the ideal king." Lord Rama is a Real Historical Figure and is said to have taken birth on earth to annihilate the evil forces of the age. He is widely believed to be an actual historical figure - a "tribal hero of ancient India" - whose exploits form the great Hindu epic of Ramayana written by the ancient Sanskrit poet Valmiki. Ramayana is a tatpurusha compound of Rāma and ayana ("going, advancing"), translating to "Rama's Journey"
