A very popular and frequently visited temple of the south, the Sundareswara Temple in Kannur is essentially a place like heaven for all the Lord Shiva devotees. Here, Lord Shiva is worshipped and adulated as Lord Sundareswara, the 'God of Beauty'. Naming the temple Sundareswara was an attempt to remind every visitor that 'Everyone is beautiful' and that one should look for the beauty in everything. Famed as one of the largest temples in the Kannur district, this majestic temple was built in 1916, and its grandiose and splendor cannot be expressed in mere words. The interiors of this opulent temple are designed and decorated by the renowned artist and ardent Shiva devotee, Sri Chaithanyaall Swami.
Sree Narayana Guru, probably the most respected and esteemed social reformer of Kerala, who dedicated his entire life to help and uplift the deprived, came up with the initiative to build this temple and laid down the foundation brick himself. The idea behind it was to bring a social reform, where people from backward classes were no longer barred from entering places of worship. Building the Sundareswara Temple also aimed at putting an end to inappropriate methods of worship like practicing ruthless animal sacrifice and following irrational superstitions.
