Chezerla Temple in Andhra Pradesh Introduction

The village Chezerla is situated at a distance of 15 miles west of Narasaraopet in the Guntur District of Andhra Pradesh. There is a good metalled road for a part of the way and for the rest one can reach the village only by Jeep and that too only in fair weather.

The village stands in the plains and is surrounded by a low range o f rocky hills and is covered by scrub jungle. The temple here is dedicated to Lord Siva. The deity is called Kapotheswara, after the famous story of Sibi mentioned in 1he Mahabharata, where, 'he is said to have sacrificed a part of his own body, as an offering to an eagle, which was pursuing a pigeon or a Kapotha, in order to save it from destruction.
