Thirunelli Temple

Thirunelli Temple is also known as "Thekkan Kashi" . It is located in the Brahmagiri hills at a distance of 32 kilometers from Mananthavadi in Wayanad, Keralam.

According to popular legend, the Thirunelli Temple was constructed by the creator, Lord Brahma himself and dedicated to the worship of Lord Vishnu. Famous incarnation of Lord Vishnu Parasurama is reputed to have visited Thirunelli and performed last rites at the death of his father sage Jamadagni. He also took immersion in the Papanasini to wipe away sins committed in killing Kshatriyas.

The amazing sculpture of the temple, papanasini river, Kalpathi, Vishnu padam, panchatheertham and the peaceful environment will cool our mind.
