THE FIERCE LORD OF ETTUMANUR

Khara continued to stay there worshipping Hari (Vishnu) and Hara (Siva). Siva was further pleased and granted him a Shivalinga, which is now worshipped at Ettumanur. On the northwestern corner of the temple facing east Khara Installed an image of Mahavishnu also. This is known as Balagopala temple-keezhtrikod. Some people are of the opinion that Khara installed the Krishna temple in order to temper the fierceness of Siva of Ettumanur.

Once a Pandyan King named an evil spirit, All the medical treatment, possessed Chanda Bhaskara and mantras were of no avail. So he prayed to the Deva of the Ettumanur temple and recovered from his afflication miraculously. It is said that it was he who constructed the Ettumanur temple.
