KALAHASTI

Kalahasti is surrounded by two sacred hills, and the one in the north has a temple of Durgamba, and the other in the south has the shrine of Kannabeswara, in memory of Sage Kannappa, who sacrificed one of his eyes as an offering to the Lord, and who when in the act of offering the other eye also was prevented by the Lord himself. The temple Of Kalahastiswara is situated to the west of Kalahasti hill. The two entrance Gopurams of the shrine is very imposing. In the second court of the temple is an underground cell, where Lord Ganapati, called here as Patala Vinayaka, is worshipped. This shrine which is 30 feet beneath the surface, is said to mark the level of the river that passes by. The sculptures of Sage Kannappa, Sakti Vinayaka, as well as the bronze figures of the Nayanars or Saivite saints in the temple are very ancient and beautiful.
