Aazhimala Siva Temple in Kazhivoor has been attracting a throng of ardent Shiva devotees as well as fascinated tourists for decades now. 'Aazhi' translates to Sea and 'Mala' means Hill- and the temple has been named so because it rests right on the golden shore of the Arabian sea on a slightly elevated platform. The Aazhimala Siva Temple, as the name suggests, is devoted to the great Lord Shiva. Since Tuesday is considered to be an auspicious day by Shiva's devotees, every Tuesday, hoards of the lord's disciples come to seek his blessings at this temple.
The annual festival of the temple is held between January and February where thousands of devotees come together to offer the 'Naranga Vilakku' which is essentially an oil lamp that is lit on a lemon. Witnessing hundreds of oil lamps on the seashore being lit in harmony will make you think that the sparkling night stars have fallen to the ground! Since the Aazhimala Siva Temple is located on an elevated pitch, the temple provides a panoramic and simply astounding view of the mesmerizingly rhythmic waves of the Arabian Sea and the endless golden shore of the remarkable Aazhimala Beach.
