In our previous blog we have mentioned about Shivanasamudram and presence of Lord Ranganathswamy temple there. There is another ancient temple known as Sri Someshwara temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, located on the Barachukki falls road. Sri Someshwara temple along with Lord Ranganatha Swamy temple and Vanadurga Devi temple, form the three most important temples which can be visited in Shivasamudram.
Someshwara temple is built in Chola style and is of octogonal shape. There are various inscription which dates back to 12-13th century.
There is a spacious hall called Navaranga with cylindrical pillars in Someshwara temple. To the left of Sanctum is the idol of Dandapani Subramanya and to the right is Ganesha. The entrance to sanctum has Dwarapalakas.
