Temple History :

Srikanteswara Temple in Kozhikode is a famous temple of Lord Shiva. This is the most famous temple of this region. It was a decade after the historically famous installation of the Aruvippuram Temple by Sree Narayana Guru, that a proposal was formed to build a temple of Lord Shiva in Kozhikode. The Shivalinga in Garbhalaya was taken from Kallingal Kshetra to the sea shore on the western side of the Sree Varakkal Devi Kshetra, accompanied by a long procession.

It is said that the land where now the temple exists, was a marshy and muddy area known as “Nalliswara MadhamVayal”.A great yogi worshiped there for years and several divine rituals were performed at that time. It is also believed that centuries ago a temple named “Naalliswara Kshetram” existed there. According to the “Deva Prashnam” conducted in the temple premises in the year 1977, it is recorded as follows:- ‘From the ancient time, thousands of years back, a great temple famous for its royal heritage in keeping the customs and divine rituals, existed here.
