  • Super environment in village setting surrounded by paddy fields. Wonderful sculptures and we'll maintained temple. God and goddess appear live so realistic idols. Must visit when in Chennai

  • It's a very old temple, but a small one. Lot of deities in here. No rush & not so dirty. Priests are polite and not money orientated. Few cars can be parked outside. Beware of the cows, they don't give way.

  • One of the ancient historic Hindu temple..and the Uniqueness of this temple is Lord Shiva who resides here is Suyambu. It has special and unique feature that each pillar holds a statue of God.

  • One of the oldest temple. Swami and Ambal alankaaram in a best way. Come and have peace of mind

  • Old sivan temple. The dhenupureeswarar inscription in one of the pillars on left side of the entrance is the key. Lord in this pillar gets special abishekam and Pooja during Saturdays from around 3 pm to 6 pm. It will be crowded around the pillar by then. It's believed that if you sincerely visit 6 weeks, your wishes will be granted
