Chela Bhairava Swamy Temple

To examine the devotion and beliefs of the people during the time of the Nolambarajas, one should know about the Chelabhairavaswamy temple to the right of the Sri Siddeswaraswamy temple.

People also perform special pujas with the belief that by the grace of God Khairaveshwar will protect their house and surrounding areas from poisonous snakes, scorpions and snakes.

The temple has an idol of Chelabhairavaswami, sculptures of snakes and scorpions. How many devotees can try their luck by throwing grains of jaggery at the top of the gopura made of bronze and brass?

The Nolamba kings are documented as benefactors of the Pasupata Saivas of Hemavati, and there are strong indications that the more esoteric Kalamukhus were also part of this religious landscape. According to the Nolamba inscription, Lakulisa, the main teacher of the Pasupatis, is believed to have lived in Hemavati incarnated as Chiluka-bhatara: “Sage Chiluka assumed the earthly incarnation of Lakulisa, worried that his teachings and legacy of dharma would be forgotten.

Nolamba king Iriva gave land to Chiluka-bhatara to support the maintenance of Naninnesvara deity. Iriva’s father Ayyappa had the title “Nanni”, which means “refuge of truth”, and Naninnesvara was Ayyappa’s royal deity and guardian.

In the religious structure of the Nolamba polity, priests were responsible for the ceremonial maintenance of royal monuments. Rituals carry considerable weight, as improper execution can lead to dire consequences for both the performer, the king, and the kingdom. Saka 800-878 A.D. Inscribed at the royal temple at Baraguru, commissioned by the Nolamba king Mahendra, is a warning against ritual violations by the supervising priest (mathpati). The inscription reads, “The king ruling the village of Mathapati, who is not celibate, has destroyed the Nad and the Sabha and is guilty of the five great sins.”
