Kalady: The emerald
Shivalinga and some silver utensils for pooja purposes were found
stolen from a shrine under Kalady Sri Sringeri Mutt today morning. The theft came to light when today morning the sanctum sanctorum was opened for routine pooja.

According to temple authorities the emerald
Shivalinga dates long back, which makes its cost estimation difficult,
experts said the idol was gifted by Nepal king to Mysore king and in
1910 the Mysore king gave away the idol to Sringeri Mutt. Police
investigations are on to recover the lost items.
