CHEZERLA

The main festival of this temple is the Sivarathri festival, and the other festivals, which are usually conducted in other Saivite temples, are also observed here, though on a small scale. The temple, though it is slightly off the main road, is still a famous one from the points of view of antiquity, architecture and sanctity. As stated above this is perhaps the only extant temple in India of the Lord Siva as 'Kapotheswara.' The Lord is also said to is a powerful one and the local legends state that any prayer that is done with sincerity and purity is generally granted here.

Here the two holes of the Linga them serve the purpose and the Abhisheka Tirtha is drained off to an unknown place. There are a number of halls attached to the front of the main shrine and one of these contains a large 'Nandi' facing the entrance. There are any numbers of small shrines round the main temple, which contain lingas. On the northeast side of the temple, there is an excellent specimen of the'Sahasra linga,’ and on the other side of the temple, is a carved stone image representing the 'Saptha Matrikas' or the Seven Mothers.
