" The First Temple we visited which is at the entrance of the forest is " Veerabadreshwara Temple " and two Hunters Guarding Temple " Thala and Kadu " So the Thala Kadu was Named like that and Veerabadreshwara is the First Shivan Temple we saw at Start and Next we Climbed the stairs which are paths to the Forest after Climbing the Stairs " The Path is Full of Sand and Surroundings " Full Forest to Explore Different types of Shivan Temple " I started walking on the sand " the sand was Chill and wonderful to walk and I was interested to know more about " Thalakadu " and its History and I decided to Go with Guide " Sri Venkata Chala who is the Local Guide in Thalakadu Tourism took us inside the forest and explored  Different  Shiva temples which are Located across Thalakadu walking on the sad feel was chill and amazing but at the same time it was a caution to watch my steps " since the place is in between Forests snakes Movements were alerted and the first Temple after a few minutes walk in Sand we reached " Pathaleshwara Temple which is first temple and this temple was Covered by Sand and was Recovered from the sand and also the 5 Shiva Lingamwhich was also Recovered from the sand.

 Temple was Reconstructed after completing Pujai at Pathaleshwara Temple we walked towards " Maraleshwara Swamy Temple " 
which is Just a Few Miles away from Pathaleshwara Temple we walked towards the Maraleshwara Temple and they were a few things which are essential for Pujai we bought those and got Darisinam from god and its a shiva temple and Climbing down the temple one should watch their steps and its steep and go carefully and after getting a blessing from Maraleswara temple we next walked towards the Chowdeshwari Amman temple

 which is located in the surrounding of the Thalakadu Forest  and on the way reaching the Temple the Monkeys were jumping from one end to another on the top of the sheet which was funny and noisy and scary too and after all the efforts I somehow reached Chowdeshwari Amman Temple and after getting the Dharisanam and Blessing from Chowdeshwari Amman temple I took a small break and experienced Yelneer which fulfilled our thirstiness and then we moved towards shiva Parvathi family temple which includes shiva Parvathi Devi and Ganesh and Murgan and Subramanya and Ravana Nandi 

 next, we moved towards the Keerthi Narayan Temple which was Built During Chola Period and its architecture were so beautiful Keerthi Narayan Swamy Temple was covered by sand and the entire temple was recovered from sand in the year 2015 by the central government of India and more renovation work taking places inside the temple and hence I got a blessing from Keerthi Naryan Swamy temple and its Vishnu temple.
