Thrissilery Shiva Temple

It is believed that the performance of rituals for the ancestors at Thirunelli temple will not be complete without an offering at Thrissilery temple. 

How to reach the temple?
The temple is located about 19 km from Thirunelli. If you are coming through the Mananthavady-Mysore highway from Thirunelli, you have to divert from Kartikulam and then drive for about 4 km to reach the temple. 

The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and it is intrinsically linked with the Vishnu temple at Thirunelli. Its architectural peculiarities attract any connoisseur’s attention. It has rather a perfect architectural proportion.

A quaint ambience and tranquility pervade the premises of the temple. Apart from the shrine of Shiva, you can also see smaller shrines of various gods in the vicinity. A small shrine of Jala Durga is situated in water which is believed to be flowing from Papanashini near Thirunelli. The water never dries up and legends say that the shrine was installed by Lord Parasurama, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.
