Talakad Patalesvara Temple

TKPath01

Located close by the Vaideyswara Temple, the Patalesvara Temple is also one of the five Panchalinga temples in Talakad but is a much smaller and less imposing structure that is almost hidden away in an excavated pit.

Although the original shrine dates back to the tenth century, most of the building is of a much more recent vintage. The linga in the inner sanctum is said to change color during the day, starting out red in the morning, then turning black in the afternoon, and finally becoming white at night.
