THE HISTORIC TALI TEMPLE

The central shrine of Siva is quadrangular in shape with double prasadas or storeys. It has stone sculptures of excellence around its exterior sides. Inside there are three rooms. The Sivalinga, about two feet in height, is in the innermost recess. It is believed to be swayambhu or self -born.Legend has it that the sage Parasurama propitiated Siva who agreed to remain at the Tali temple in the form of a linga. It was Yogi Narayana, the mad (Narayanathu Bhranthan), who is said to have performed kalasam or purificatory ceremonies and installed other deities.

The temple also contained some notable examples of old workmanship in wood illustrating various puranas. The scenes and figures are boldly designed expressive of high emotions, of throbbing life and vigor.
