The lord Kapotheshwara temple in the Chejarla village, is probably the only temple in the whole of India dedicated to Lord Siva as Kapotheshwara. The deity is in Lingakara. Siva is here represented as Kapotheshwara, who gave a portion of his own body in order to save a pigeon that took refuge with him. Curiously, in the image of the Linga there are even today large cavities as if portions have been scooped or cut out, and these are said to be the places of the body, from which the Lord cut off his own flesh, in order to save the life of the Kapotha.
