KALAHASTI

The main gate of the temple proper faces south, and this is clear proof that the temple is dedicated to Dakshinamurthy, who is a manifestation of Lord Siva. Entering the temple, we then have the Vighneswara temple to our west. There are also idols of Appar, Sundarar and Manikkavasagar who are famous Saivite Nayanars saints. Next comes the sacred shrine of Sri Kalahastiswara and just before the main entrance is the idol of Kannappa, the great devotee, who, removed his eyes as an offering to the Lord. Many rare icons like Vallablia Ganapati, Mahalaxmi Ganapati and Saha-sralingeswara Swami also exist in the temple.
