At a distance of 16 Kms from Kozhikode Railway Station, Mannur Temple dedicated to Lord Siva located in Kadalundi village. The model of this temple is similar to the Siva Temple at Tiruvannur.

This temple is at least 200 years old. It was built as Gajaprathista styled soil structure with extensive carving. The central sanctum is having two levels. Lord Siva is depicted in angry form at this temple. It is believed that Sri Parashurama starts his Siva Linga prathista at Tiruvannur and completes it here every noon. The noon pujas here are therefore considered very special. The annual Sivaratri festival is celebrated in a big way in the month of Feb.

Lord Vishnu, Goddess Parvathi, Dakshinamurthy & Lord Ganesh are also worshipped here.
