      History of Sri Kapileswara Swamy Temple

    According to the history, this temple derives its name from Maharshi Kapila, who immersed himself in ardent Shiva Pooja to satisfy the Lord. With the unswerving devotion of Kapila Muni, the Lord Shiva and Parvati presented themselves at this location and blessed him. During this time the Kapila Lingam pierced through the ground, presenting itself, when the seven worlds were instantly devotionally involved with this Linga. Greatness of Lord Sri Kapileswara was mentioned in the Kulothunga Chola inscriptions. These are the most ancient inscriptions among all the inscriptions found in the temple and belong to the 10th century.On the auspicious occasion of full moon day of the Karthika month, all the teerthas( holy water springs) of the three worlds of heaven, earth and underworld converge in this sacred Kapila Teertham.
