Sri Pazhukkara Mahadeva Temple is rare one that of shrine is faced to the western side. And it is more than 3000 year old. There is no such Temples nearing place as foretold by the Astrologers.
According to the Legends relating to this Temple,The history of this Temple is , This place is having a mountain spring surrounded by thick forest. One saint through his sincere worship has seen the Lord Shiva in Kiratha mood along with ‘ Sri Parvathi ‘. The saint sacrificed this physical body after many years of sincere worship
Years after the departure of the ‘ saint ‘ the temple kept idle and the Shrine was also vanished (lost) . It is not known how the shrine was disappeared. And the place of the temple became the center of antisocial activities
Later days the natives of Payyanad village as well as the well wishers of the temple have organized and framed a temple development community and reestablished the worship of Lord Shiva and all the ceremony relating to the Pazhukkara Mahadeva Temple. And the temple exists as it is under the control of the Kappattu Oottubrahmaswaswam Payyanad. Lack of the shrine (“Pradishtta”) the full fledged power of the Lord Shiva become less and less
As per astrological Testimony the installation of “ Ganapathy ”,” Shasthave ” as well as “ Nagaraja ” with “ Nagakanyaka ” and “ Acharya Bramarakshasu ” where already been done through the sponsorships made by the natives of the payyanad along with the contributions from the worshipers also
Now the Temple Development Community is trying for the renovation of the temple along with the installation of the “ Main pradishtta “. The proposed date of pradishtta is 2015 February 27th instant. The estimated cost of the event is around 25(twenty five) Lakhs.
It is a hard and fast task to our people concerned as all are belongs to poor labor families. with our limited resources we sponsored the main shrine and balikallus for the time being
So we wish to approach the well wishers and worshipers of Lord Shiva for the whole hearted co-operation and help from all abroad
It will be thankful to all in the name of Lord Shiva for the contribution by kind or money.
