Kizhakku Kailasanadar Sevilimedu is a small east facing temple with a small 2 tiered gopuram at the southern entrance. The temple is so named (Kizhakku – east) because there is one more to the west. The temple is in a nice and shady spot with a sprawling banyan tree just outside and several other trees inside. Renovations work was going on as we visited in 2018.
