Muthante Nada Mahadeva Temple
|This temple has three deities – Lord Shiva, Muthan Vallyachan and Bhadra. In the olden days, the temple lamp was a guiding light for the fishermen and the boatmen on the lake.
The administration and the daily rituals of the temple, which has a three-day festival in April, are carried out by members of the scheduled caste community.
Tender coconuts are the main offering for Lord Shiva. For Muthen Vallyachan, it is toddy, and other drinks and eatables (vellamkudy). It is believed that every Thursday and Friday, the temple deities speak to the devotees through the oracle (velichappadu) at the temple. The oracle performs a kind of ritualistic dance known as velipadu thullal. On these days, the oracle will talk about the past and predict the future of the devotees who approach him.
