Sri Sadashiva Rudra Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva located in Nada village of Dakshina Kannada, Karnataka. Even though the temple is called Sadashiva Rudra Devasthana, it is popular and famous as the “Surya” Temple. Devotees impress Lord Shiva to get rid of their problems & after getting their wishes fulfilled they offer clay sculptures that resemble the replicas of buildings, cars, couples, currency notes, or coins whatever they prayed for. As said by the Archakaru, Initially when you are making Sankalpa need not go there, from your place only you can do the Sankalpa. Once your Sankalpa is fulfilled you can go there & do the offerings.
Once upon a time, a woman was chopping grass with her son at this place, when she hit a stone. Blood started oozing out from the stone she had hit. Seeing blood coming from the stone, the woman cried out “Sureya” to her son. After that incident, the place was named Sureya, which gradually became Surya.
