  • There are so many temples in our place. They are all set
    in beautiful surroundings. The smaller temples are such
    peaceful places. The same cannot be said about some
    of the bigger temples where devotees come in large
    numbers. There are so many people at any given time.
    I suppose I like to go to a temple when there are fewer
    people about. We usually go to the night puja.

    The Sri Janardana and Mahakali temple is a very quiet
    and serene place. We go there as often as we can. It is
    pleasure to just sit in its premises.
    Janardhana Temple is a granite structure, built in the
    architectural style of the Chola period. As we enter the
    shrine, the idol of Lord Janardhana standing with chakra,
    conch, mace and lotus in His four hands can be seen.
    This temple is more than 500 years old.
    The Shrine of Sri Mahakali, situated on the southern side
    of Sri Janardana, is facing west. The idol of Mahakali holding
    chakra, conch, sword and a vessel (symbolic of a drink of
    demonic blood offered to her protruding tongue) bears a
    majestic look.
    Navarathri is the main festival of this shrine. Tuesdays and
    Fridays are busy days as it is also the temple of the
    Goddess Kali.
