History of Parashurama Ksetra

Shri Parashurama is an avatar of Shri Vishnu. He was born to sage Jamadagni. He got blessed with the parashu (axe) as he pleased Lord Shiva with his tapas. So he got the title "Parashu"Rama.

There was a powerful king called Kartaviryarjuna. He wanted to forcefully take away the Kamadhenu that was in the hermitage of sage Jamadagni. As the sage did not allow his brutal act, Kartaviryarjuna killed Jamadagni. When Parashuram got to know about this, he realized the way the ruling class is misusing the power. So he fought with Kartaviryarjuna and killed him. He further cleansed the misbehaving rulers of 21 generations.

Subsequently, he did penance for the wrath by worshiping Lord Shiva. He wanted to focus on tapas. So, by divine order, he threw his axe into the sea to reclaim the land from the ocean as far as the axe went. Thus reclaimed land is called Parashurama Kshetra. This land extends from Gokarna in the north to Suchindram in south. Parashurama worshiped Lord Shiva in the 108 places in this Parasuram Kshetra.

These temples are located in very scenic places across the length of Kerala. The yatra to these, when taken aligned with nature, would be a blissful experience!
