Ettumanoor Mahadeva Temple

The paintings of Lord Nataraja (God of Dance) on the gopuram (temple tower) is one of the main attractions here. Unlike in most other temples, here the idol faces the West.

Situated in Kottayam district, the temple complex dates back to 1542 CE. It attracts large crowds when its annual Ezharaponnana (the seven-and-a-half elephants finished in gold) Ezhunallathu (procession) is held, usually in the month of February.
