There is a Temple for Prathyangira at Marattandi, near Puducherry/Pondicherry, on the Tindivanam Road. Prathyangira Homam is performed every month on Shukla Paksha Ashtami (Waxing Moon). The Temple has a 72 feet Idol of Pratyangira Devi outside the temple and a small temple is inside.
Lord Vinayakar’s idol changes its color to black and white once in every six months. During Utharayan (March-June), the idol is black, and in Dakshiyana (July-Feb) idol turns to white. This temple came to be known as ‘’Miracle Ganesh Temple. There is a well inside the temple complex and the color of the water too changes every six months. When the idol is white, the water changes to black and vice versa!
There is a Temple of Lord Shiva which disappears only to reappear. Legends say that this Temple was built by Kartikeya, called Murugan in Tamil, after he killed Tarakasura.(Kumararika kanda, Skanda Puarna) The Temple is in the Gulf of Cambay in Gujarat.
I am providing a list of such temples in Kerala. 1.Navaikkulam Shankaranarayana Temple in Thiruvananthapuram district 2.Ramanthali Shankaranarayana Temple in Kannur district 3.Thiruvegappura Shankaranarayana Temple in Palakkad district
Many of the legends, temples and customs may seem to bizarre and might sound even crazy. Sometimes being crazy seems to me more rational, especially when something is in front of You which has no business to be. I received a Forward from Mr.Damodaran Nair. This is about a Crocodile guarding Lord Vishnu's Temple.
