MANNARASALA SHRI NAGARAJ TEMPLE
Alappuzha, Kerala

In the past Lord Parshuram, to absolve himself from the sin of killing Kshatriyas approached the holy Rishis, who asked him to gift land to Brahmins. He reclaimed land from the sea and gifted it , which came to be known as Kerala. The land was inhabitable due to high salinity and venomous snakes. Lord Shiva, instructed him to worship Nagaraj, who solved the twin problems making the land green and fertile. A temple was constructed at this place to honour Nagaraj.
The turmeric paste available at the temple is believed to have curative powers. People offer prayers here to overcome issues with Infertility.
