Thirunelli Temple (also Tirunelli) is an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu on the side of Brahmagiri hill in Kerala. The temple is 3000 years old and is at an altitude of about3,000 feet in north Wayanad in a valley surrounded by mountains and beautiful forests
Thirunelli is the only Temple is the only temple in the world where the devotees can perform all the rituals related to one’s life, starting from birth to death and life after death.

It is believed that here the prathishta of Lord Vishnu was performed by Lord Brahma. It is also known as ''Sahyamala Kshetram'' and ''Kashi of the South''.

The beautiful Brahmagiri hills and the surrounding lush green forests have made the temple premises a valley of tranquility. So everybody feels completely relaxed after sitting in the sanctum of the temple. The temple is an embodiment of ancient temple architecture. The aquaduct that brings water to the temple is also a witness to hundreds of years of history and considered to be an engineering marvel.

Thirunelli Temple

Any temple will have a well of its own for its need of water. But Thirunelli temple is a exception in this matter. Water for abhisheka and puja needs are brought in to the temple from forest springs deep inside through stone pathways which are called 'kal pathis'.  It is a wonder even today water is brought in to the temple through these 'kal pathis'. The water tastes heavenly.

A pipe is connected to the end of the stone path way leading to the temple and water is collected through a tap inside the temple. Beautiful stone 'mandapams' are seen on the western side of the temple. They seem to be on the verge of destruction.
