Kalinga Narthana

Oothukkaadu, a small village near Papanasam, where you can see the Kalinga Narthana temple. The Krishna vigraham is seen here. 

An interesting feature at this temple is the posture of Kalinga Narthana - his left leg is seen on top of the Asura Snake but not touching the snake. His left thumb alone is holding the tail of the snake with none of his other four fingers in contact with the tail!! His right leg is seen above the ground in a dance posture. On a close look, one can find the scars on his leg below the knee, the result of his fight with Kalinga.
