Vellarakkad Sree Rama Temple is located close to Erumappatty near Vadakkaancherry in Thrissur district. The idol of Sree Rama was installed here by Sage Agasthya. Agasthya was doing penance in a cave at this place. Once due to heavy flood his ashrama was severely damaged and he prayed to Lord Rama for help. Rama appeared in front of him and said that flood will not affect his ashrama in the future. Lord told him that he will get a beautiful Rama/Vishnu idol from the nearby pond and instructed him to install that idol in a suitable place. Sage Agasthya followed lord’s command and installed the idol at this place. He worshipped Lord Rama here for several years and later left to Agasthyarkoodam (in Thiruvananthapuram district)
