As so the name Kaleshwara (Lord Yama) and Muktheshwara (Lord Shiva) came into existence.


Lord Shiva determines the end of our life cycle and commands Lord Yama to end the mortal life as per the life cycle. People were attaining salvation and causing an imbalance in nature. Lord Yama worships Lord Shiva to retain the life cycle.

It is believed that devotees who prayer lord Shiva here will attain moksha, relieved from the birth cycle. Lord Shiva after knowing the wish of Lord Yama said to install a Ling on your name beside Mukteeshwara ling(Lord Shiv). From now you visits Kaleshwaram and had darshan of Kaleshwara ling(Yama) will get salvation.
