Chaya Someswara Swamy temple
The temple was built in 11th - 12th centuries during Ikshvaku Dynasty.
The formation of relentless shadow of a pillar falls over the main deity of Shivalingam throughout the day.
The mystery was cracked by a Physics lecturer from a local college. The architect designed in such a way that the light that enters the temple deflect the four pillars that are precisely placed in front of the Garbagudi, and forming a thick shadow. The theory of scattered light was explained by Nobel laureate, C. V. Raman in the Raman scattering.
