Adityapuram Surya Deva Temple

Adityapuram Surya Deva Temple is the only temple in Kerala dedicated to Aditya, the sun god. Believed to have been raised by Marangat Mana, a Brahmin family, this temple is located near Iravimangalam. The idol of the sun god is made of particular type of stone that absorbs oil. It faces the west and said to be in the meditative form. The main ritual performed here is the Abhishekam (bathing of the idol) by oil, followed by water. Rakthachandanam (medicinal sandalwood) is the main prasadam given to the devotees. The first and last Sundays of the Vrischikam (October- November) and Medam (May-June) are considered auspicious and special ceremonies and rituals performed.
