Nice very old temple. fully cultured. ladies are not allowed inside the temple ( inner round), and men's are allowed only with panche (doti) and shirt should be removed. 2 months ago
This is an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, venerated here as Rajarajeshwara or the Emperor of emperors, consecrated by Parasuram, renovated by the Chirakkal kings and partly destroyed by Tipu Sultan.

Sri Raja Rajeswara temple is considered to be one of the most ancient Shiva temples in south India. Only a small portion of the front main entrance has survived as a relic.
But if you look at this small piece of relic, you can imagine how magnificent and glorious, this temple should have been in the earlier centuries.
Only Hindus are allowed and there is a dress code for visitors. we can not enter with pants/shorts, even after removing shirt / banian. One has to wear Mundu / Panche. Ladies are allowed to enter ONLY in the evening after 7 pm. Normally local devotees offer ghee lamps to the god. The temple is open from 5.00 am to 12.00 pm and again from 5.00 pm to 8.30 pm. The charges for different types of offerings varies from Rs.5/- to Rs. 3000/-.

The temple is maintained well and cooler. Not so crowded also silent. It opens and closes every now and then during pooja timings. So unfortunately, if you visit when its closed, will have to wait for 30-45 min to open. God is visible only when bend down and look.
