Prayers
    
 

Whatever the disease, its nature and gravity vanishes if the devotee bathes in the sea for 41 days and pray to Lord Swayamblinganatha.  The problems of the disabled, blind, hunchbacks, mentally retarded, those possessed with withcrafts and evil magic and devil spirits get cured.  Lord also helps those seeking child boon and removal of obstacles in marriage alliances.  This is the experience of the devotees of the temple since days of yore.  For those seeking mental peace, the temple is the correct destination.

 
    
Thanks giving:
    
  The main prayer commitment is that people carry the sea sand in 11 or 41 baskets and put it near the temple. Some make Nagar idols and place them in the temple. 
    
 Greatness Of Temple:
     
 

Of the 25 forms of Lord Shiva, Lingodhbava is one.  Lord is a Swayambumurthi in this temple.  The beauty is that that Sun God performs abishek to Lord with His rays on all the 30 days of Margazhi month – December-January.  Though Sun worships Lord Shiva in various temples polacing His rays, the duration is for a few days only.  This is the only temple where Sun rays fall on the Lord for the whole month.

 

Also, this is the only temple in Uvari where Mother Nature directly treats the Lord with cool breeze.  There are four springs on the sea shore which are pleasantly palatable and considered the abishek theertha of the Lord.   Every illness concerning either the body or mind is cured by the Lord if the devotee sincerely prays to him.  The place is also a tourist destination.

 
     
  Temple History:
     
 

A milk vendor from Kootapanai was hit at a particular spot on his way through Uvari to sell his milk.  He cut the root of the Kadamba tree when it began to bleed.  A voice told the milk vendor that He was there and asked him to build a temple.  The milk vendor did so with palm leaves and in days that followed, the temple grew to the present size.  Devotees are happy that any illness of any nature is cured by the Lord.
