This unique temple of five Deities situated at Anikkode, Near Kottayi, by the side of the sacred river 'Nila' descending from the 'Swayambhoo Sivalinga' on the Thirumurthimalai of Tamilnadu and flowing in the shape of a crescent, has recently been found to shower countless blessings on the devotees coming from far and near.

The temple which came into being a thousand years ago, holding within a divinity that is rare in form and presence- the five Deities Sree Ganesh, Lord Siva, Sree Parvathy, Lord Vishnu and Sree Sastha, dwelling in five different shrines, in course of time, turned to be a dilapidated structure with weeds and wild bushes growing around. The mighty achievement of reconstruction of the temple, without destroying former geometry, was accomplished under the leadership and guidance of Dr. N. Gopalakrishnan Ph. D, D. Lit [Scientist &Director of IISH] and his dedicated team of co-ordinators/members of IISH, Palakkad and along with the persistence presence of devotees and well-wishers in and around the premides. It given us immense pleasure and it was provides privilege to us. The formal consecration rites were conducted in July 2008 in a befitting manner. Facing the west in the main temple remains the shrine of Vighneswara and just in front of it is the shrine of Lord Siva, in Banalinga form with the shrine of Sree Parvathy close by. The image of Sree Sastha in the temple is in 'Padmasana' Posture, wearing matted hair and crown and holding \Amritha Kalasa'. Lord Vishnu dwelling in another shrine, is made of 'Nava Thalasila' and in 'Chathur bahu roopa'.

The temple of the five Deities, by the side of the sacred river 'Nila' is auspicious for Balitharpana - offering sacrifice to the souls of the departed forefathers. A visit to this temple is believed to make the devotee free from the sins of 'Brahma hathya' and of former birth and bless him with prosperity and peace.
