Vaidyanatheswara Temple complex houses the main temple dedicated to Lord Vaidyanatheswara and other temples within the complex. The temple is in use by the Pilgrim and also popular among the tourists. The temple is located adjacent to Vehicle Parking Area. The temples in the complex are built in typical South Indian styles and the main attraction of the temple is the chain carved out of stone, which is suspended from the ceiling on the outer side,

A very historical temple built during 8th century. Since, the temple has been expanded and rebuilt over time, the architecture of temple appears to be mixture of many kingdoms.
We attended early morning pooja, which was very nice.
Maintenance work was in progress in some areas.

Vaidyanatheswara temple is one of panchalinga temples in Talakadu dedicated to Hindu God Shiva said to be built between 10th - 14th century during Gangas and Chola dynasty period.

The temple has beautiful carvings and sculptures prominent being the stone ring with snake head at the entrance.

Worth a visit for architecture and history enthusiasts.

The temples in Talakad are a recently discovered and are being preserved. The Vaidyanatheswara Temple is the most prominent among them. The best part is that this ancient temple along with the others have withstood the journey of time and still give an awesome experience. You can still perform Pooja in this temple. The ring made of stone is the main attraction here.A nice place to dive into history

This temple is between sand dunes and the central point in Talacud. This is similar to the Belur temples albeit nowhere close to them in terms of scale. There is worship in this temple. Photography is allowed outside the sanctum and offers some good sculpting samples. It is maintained well. There is a slipper stand outside. One could just leave the footwear here and complete all the temples without footwear since the remainder of the walk is entirely over soft sand. There is ample parking space outside. The pushkarani outside is closed to public and is well maintained.

Among the temples of Talakadu, the five Lingams believed to represent the five faces of Shiva. Vaidyanatheshwara is one among them. The other four namely are the Pathaleshwara, Maruleshwara, Arkeshwara and Mallikarjuna temple. Traditionally the pilgrims should first bathe in the Gokarna theertham, worship Gokarneswara and Chowdeswari, and then worship Vaidyanatheshwara on the new moon day in the month of Karthika, when the two stars of Khuha Yoga and Vishaka conjoin. We along with family and friends visited the temple on 18th December, 2016.

This is the first temple one gets to see after paking the vehicle in Talakadu. The temple is well maintained and vast. Beware of the guides. They keep bugging you to use their services. We did not use their services since we can know more than what they explain from the internet, and it is free of cost :)

Note: Photography and videography is prohibited inside the temple premises.

Sri Vaidyanatheshwara temple is the largest of the four Linga temples we visited. The place is very serene and quite. We can see that the Nandhi is mounted on a height atop of a mandapa facing the gopuram of the temple. The temple has some good sculptures - prominently the stone rings hanging in one corner of the temple.

Temple is very beautiful. The carvings are elegant. Some of the interesting features are outer walls, Dwarpalaks, Five headed snakes close to Stone Chains etc. A must visit place if you like old architecture and are nearby.

Tips:- Do research on the google before you go. No need to hire a local guide. Wear sandals as there are 5 Shiva Temples nearby and a Keerthinarayan Temple. Make sure you cover your head during summers or during afternoons in general.
