  • This temple is situated in Kottukal village in Anchal , Kollam District. Believed to be constructed between 6th and 8th century AD. This temple is made by cutting one big natural rock present in this place. Here Lord Siva , Ganapathi and Hanuman are worshiped. Daily pooja are conducted there. From Kollam town this temple is around 30 plus km drive. The place where this is situated is in a village and is very less crowded. Morning the temple will be open till around 10 am only and evening it will be open around 5.00 PM to 7.00 PM on normal days. Currently this is projected by Archaeological department and some renovation activities are in progress.
