LORD SIVA OF ETTAMANUR

In his uncontrollable exuberant devotion, Khara performed Kanakabhishekha to Lord Siva - his istadaivam. Gratified at his unparalleled piety, the Lord gave him another sum of ten thousand crore gold coins. Pleased- with this unexpected bumper harvest, both performed Kanakabhishekham to Mahavishnu. Soon after this Pingala left Gurukulam with the blessings of Khara. 

Khara resumed his meditation later propitiating Lord Mahavishnu and Siva. Overjoyed with his intense devotion, the Lord granted him a Sivalinga, the very same holy one is now worshipped in this temple. Khara in grateful memory installed Mahavishnu's image on the north west corner of the temple. 

And is called Balagopala statue, who with his pranks and play would certainly abate the extreme ferocity of Lord Siva. Whatever might be the cause, Keezhtiri Kovil is luring devotees for an eyeful Darshan of Balagopala, whose childhood life and plays send thrills in the spines of the beholders at his mention and sight.
