Temple for Shiva Bhakta

This may be probably only one temple where the Bhakta is placed above his beloved GOD.But most of the visitors do not visit this temple as it is not popular and not maintained well, though the scriptures say it is must to visit this temple before visiting main deity Lord Shiva and Mata Jnana Prasoonambika.

Worth visiting place

Bhakta Kannappa Temple, is worth visiting place, where Kannappa is given mere importance due to innocence and sacrifice for Lord Shiva. This is temple almost like attached to main Lord Shiva Temple. To Kannappa Temple one has to climb upwards approx a 100 steps. Pleasant place.

Avoid on special days

Worth visiting this temple. Avoid peak hours like between 8 AM to 11AM and between 6 PM to 8 PM. Avoid public holiday and festive days. Please don't carry mobile and camera. But please do carry small currency and change for pooja related expenses.
