this is very ancient divine temple. the main deity is siva which is swayambu. It is believed that the head and body of Lord shiva are here while the foot is in thirunelli. While entering the temple you are supposed to visit the temple pond. When you wash your feet here you a very strange and nice feekling. The pond itself is a scene. Then you are supposed to worship Jaladurga which is amidst water supposed to be installed by parasurama. It is very beautiful. Then there is well where you can worship ganesh idol. After some other deities finally you are in front of Lord shiva. The deity is so powerful that when you stand in front of it you will forget every thing and you will submerge in its darshan. Very vivid temple. After Darshan of shiva you are supposed to see the part of swayambu which is projecting outside the temple. You have follow the arrowmarks on the floor right from entry to exit of the temple to complete the visit as per system. If you are planning to visit thirunelli for final rites you are supposed to inform here and light special lamps here before going there. It is a very important must visit temple.

If you have planned to visit the excellent temples in the Wayanad district of Kerala, then the Thrissilery Shiva Temple and the Thirunelli Vishnu Temples are two of the most divine places to visit. According to the traditional custom you must first visit the Thrissilery temple and then proceed to the Thirunelli temple, in that order. Both the temples are located in the midst of the hills of the Western Ghats, near the town of Manathavady, in North Wayanad, but separated by a distance of 19 km. We decided to visit the temples on the way out from Vythiri. It is about 45 km from Vythiri (about 35 km from Kalpetta). It was difficult to find the temple, as we were offline as we got nearer to the remote place where the temple is located. We reached the temple after an almost two hour drive from Vythiri, enquiring the route from the locals. The temple is very secluded and surrounded by an ambience of peace and tranquillity. At mid-day we were the only pilgrims to visit the temple, and the priests themselves took us around for darshan. To enter the sanctum sanctorum and perform a guided puja I had to remove my shirt and vest and only then allowed to enter. We had to do a circumambulation of the sanctum in a well defined path which is marked on the ground. Though it is a Shiva temple there are also idols of other deities which are worshipped. These include Lord Vishnu, Goddess Saraswati, Lord Ganesha, Lord Muruga and Lord Hanuman. Located behind the temple in a water body, is a small shrine of Jala Durga. This perennial water body originates from the Papanashini River near Thirunelli. Locals believe that the shrine was installed by Lord Parasurama, an incarnate of Lord Vishnu. We felt very blessed after visiting this temple. We collected holy prasadam from the temple office, and continued our journey to the Thirunelli Vishnu Temple.

This is a hiistorical temple located at Thrissilery about 10km from Mananthavady in Wayanad District of Kerala. This is basically a siva temple. There are other dieties like ganpati, Durga, sastha etc. The custom of the temple and method of darsan was well explained by the temple priest and other staff. The Ambience gives the real feel of temple darsan. There is a pond which is full of water round the year. The water level is actually above the temple premises and you can see water at many parts of the temple. This is actually related to the great temple at their house hich is about 8km walk through forests. But the road commonly used is about 30km. The water at theirunelli reaches this temple near the Jala Durga dietary. Jala Durga sanctom is actually inside a small water body which reminds about the Jala Durga temple in thrichambaram Krishna temple in Taliparambu. The other lake temples seen by me re the Vishnu temple at Ananthapura in Kasargode district and the one seen in Nepal namely budhanikanta
