Cheriazheekal Temple in Karunagappally

Cheriazheekal Temple in Karunagappally

Known for its twin temples, Cheriazheekal is steeped in legends. The Sri Kashi Vishwanathar Temple is also known as the Deccan Kashi Temple, after the legend of the priest who installed the Sivalingam that he found in the Ganges at Cheriazheekal. But it is also believed that the place housed a temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu, built some 2,000 years ago. So today it is a temple for both Siva and Vishnu, and Mahasivaratri is celebrated annually for 10 days as grandly as the festivities that surround Sree Krishna Jayanthi.
