Explore the Charm of Temple's Peculiarity

Nestled in the serene village of Keezha Korukkai, there's an age-old temple that feels like a step back in time. Lord Shiva & his consort, Goddess Pushpavathi, are worshipped here. Though a tad worn-out & tucked away between bushy paths, a visit to this temple promises a fresh start in life.

A Bit of Mythology

Imagine this: a great sage named Gorakka Siddha stopped by this village long ago. After a tiring journey, he chose to rest in a nearby hut. Upon waking up (imagine his surprise!), he found a woman sleeping next to him, her saree’s end clutched in his hand. Startled & determined to maintain his purity, he cut off his own hand! Praying earnestly to Lord Shiva for forgiveness, the sage was blessed & had his hand restored — thus giving the village its name: Korukkai.

Something Special Here
