Abode of Lord Siva
Sree Chandrasekharapuram Siva temple is located at Muppathadom, the bank of
holy river Periyar, also known as Dakshina Ganga, about 7 kms from the famous
city Aluva. Very rarely seen in Kerala, this temple has a Sadasiva Banalinga
deity in the dhyana posture facing the west. Thus being a temple with Swayambhoo
Bana Lingam from the Himalayas, the abode of Kailasanathan, Sree Chandrasekharapuram
Siva temple is known as Dakshina Kailasam among devotees.
The temple belonged to the famous Kunnamparambath mana, but as the present generation of owners decided to have involvement of local devotees in the management and development of the temple, they formed and registered the “Sree Chandra sekharapuram Siva kshethra Trust” consisting of local devotees from all walks of life, irrespective of religion, caste, creed or any other consideration.
