According to the legends, a local ruler, Vakkay Kaimal, had a dream one night in which some mysterious person appeared before him and told him that the four idols have been washed ashore and that these idols are to
be consecrated at such and such places. Next day, Kaimal hastened to the sea shore and he saw four idols laying there as indicated in the dream. As per the instructions in the dream, the four idols were duly installed in four temples. Lord Rama at Thriprayar (22 Km North west of Irinjalakuda), Bharata at Irinjalakuda, Lakshmana at Moozhikulam (30 KM south west of Irinjalakuda) and Shatrughna at Payammal (5 KM south of Irinjalakuda). It is believed that worshipping at these four temples on the same day is especially meritorious. It is believed that Lord Krishna worshipped these idols.
This temple is part of the famous Nalambala Darshana Yatra.
The idol of Lord Shatrughna is housed in a squarish granite sanctum sanctorum in the Shathrughna temple. The original Panchaloha (Five Metals - Brass, Bronze, Copper, Gold and Silver) has been untracable though efforts have been made to retrieve it from the temple pond situated in the back yard of the temple complex. The existing idol made of granite exudes a rare kind of divinity.
Shatrughna Swamy Temple opens from 4:30 AM to 10 AM and from 4:30 PM to 8 PM.
Darsan Dresscode: At Payammal Shatrughna Swamy Temple, Traditional Kerala attire is preferred.

Shathrughna is considered to be the reincarnation of the Sudarsana Chakra(disc) in the hands of Mahavishnu. The existing idol made of granite exudes a rare kind of divinity. Payammal Shatrughna Swamy Temple is a heaven of peace and sanctity and a devotee experiences an unique sense of satisfaction after praying in this abode.

February/March : Annual Festival
For most Hindus, praying at temples far and near, is not just for a fleeting sense of gratification but an eternal drive of their devotional self. We worship the divine presence in our idols and the reverberating essence of holiness in our temples. The unflinching faith of the devotees have turned many of our religious places into sanctums of all powerful energy. Pilgrimaide is first of its kind platform in the world to provide its users with comprehensive, consistent and consolidated access to information on various pilgrim destinations.
