About Matthithaleshwara Temple

Mathithaleshwara Story

According to the legend, long ago there was a saint who lived in this place. As a devotee of Lord Shiva, he does penance sitting under a tree. While he was engrossed in penance, an anthill grows around him. As time passed, one day the village chief noticed a cow standing near the anthill and giving milk. He goes close to the anthill and breaks open the anthill to find a Shiva Linga there.   

Later in his dream Lord Shiva appears and says that he will settle in this place. The tree under which the saint sat for penance was a Mathi tree. The place got the name as ‘Mathithaleshwara’ as they found the Shivalinga under the Mathi tree. The bark of the tree along with mud of the anthill ( Hutha ) have medicinal properties and cures skin diseases.
