A TEMPLE FOR BHARATA

Distinctive Features

There are certain distinctive features about Kutalmanikyam- temple.  Firstly, as already mentioned, there is a single pratishta here, that of Bharata, they're being no other upadevatas. Secondly, the flower offerings consist of only lotuses, tulasi and -chetti; no other flowers are used for worship. Third, the temple -tank-Kulipini tirtham--contains plenty of fish, which are held sacred, but no such- creatures like water-snakes, frogs, etc., commonly found in most tanks.  The water is said to have curative properties.

Lastly, there are only three Pujas conducted here daily against the five normally, performed in all great temples.
