I'm wearing mala and in 41 day vratha to go to shabarimala.I visited a Shiva temple where the deity is in Kirathamoorthy form/Vetakkorumakan.

There was no rope/block to prevent full Pradakshina.So unknowingly Did Full pradaskshina.

After doing so when I asked about pradaskshina ..It was said that only half should be done like in normal shiva Temple.But in our Vetakkorumakan temple we do full pradaskshina.... I was wondering if I did something wrong.

This is more regional practice.

In Kerala the parikrama way is different. In TN usually not very strict way is followed.

Further as per the tradition if a shiva linga is covered with a roof then you can do its full parikramA.

In most north indian temples also they do full parikrama.

So.i dont think you have done anything bad.

Ultimately only devotion matters.
