Photograph of the south view of Shiva Temple at Kunniparamba, Calicut taluk, Malabar district, taken by a photographer of the Archaeological Survey of India around 1900-01.

In the second volume of his work 'Malabar' of 1887, William Logan wrote about this temple,"In Kanniparamba amsam, there is a temple dedicated to Siva, Vishnu, Ganapati, Ayyapan and Dakshinamurti. It is 132 feet square. It is a very ancient temple so much so that it is fabled to have been founded by Kannwa Rishi commemorated in the Maha Bharata."
