Amanakara Sree Bharatha Temple
Amanakara Sree Bharatha Temple is situated in Rampuram Panchayt near Ramapuram in Kottayam district (3 km from Ramapuram Sree Rama Temple). The idol of Bharatha was installed here by a great Yogi more than 1500 years ago.There were five manas (Brahmin homes) here. Hence this place got the name Iymanakkara (Iy – five). It signifies as a village with five Manas. Later Imanakkara became Amanakkara. Marthandavarma, King of Thiruvithamcoor, visited here and participated in the Namaskara Ootu, when he was in disguised attire in order to make plans to kill the Ettuveetil pillamar. A perfect blend of Kerala Vashtukala can be spotted in the Sreekovil and Namaskaramandapam of this temple.
