  • Must go place
  • Temple that is both well-known and influential. When entering the sanctum, men are required to wear the "mundu" and have their chests uncovered. Believers are required to pay obeisance at this location before beginning any endeavour of significance. It went through a makeover not too long ago. The shattering of coconuts is a common activity here. The current stock of coconuts that are kept on the premises can be purchased at a significant discount in comparison to those that are sold in the surrounding area. Inside coconut available for Rs.16/- but outside Rs.20/- or more This temple was constructed by members of an ancient Indian army.
