4: Interesting article. Just wanted to add a temple that is overlooked most of the times. Its a very rare temple due to the unique placements of the shrines. Its the Kasivisvesvaran temple located in the Lakkundi village, Karnataka. The uniqueness of the temple is that the shrines of God Shiva and Sun God are facing each other. In addition to that, the Sun God is facing west instead of facing east. This is the only temple where the Sun god faces the west.

11: Dear Concerned,

In aforesaid article/news it is written that KAL BHAIRAV Temple is located in Ujjain (Uttar-Pradesh). Request you to please correct it as the temple is situated in holy city VARANASI (Uttar-Pradesh). Hope you will rectify this.
