This temple is also referred to as the Dhenupurisvara or the Thiripureeswarar, being dedicated to the lord Shiva; locally called as Dhenupureeswarar.

Another striking feature of this temple is the old, brilliantly picturesque architecture. Built when the Cholas were reigning, this temple dates back to mostly the 10th century as per some religious statistics.

Dhenupureeswarar Temple Reviews & Ratings

  • 1000+ years old shrine.. Very powerful temple.. big pond.. divine place.. spend time peacefully.. Excellent architecture.. very very minute detailing.. excellent

  • It's a very beautiful and calm space where you will feel calmness and full positive vibes. This place is very close to my heart.. Temple maintenance will be very great and a must go place for Chennai people..

  • One of the Shiva temple in the periphery of developing Chennai. Neat Clean in most parts of the Temple. The wash area needs improvement. All deities are well decorated and adorned with floral garland. One will definitely feel the vibrations in th precincts of the temple

  • Very old temple as I heard more than 1000 years old. Regarding the ambience it is pretty decent. They don't have ample car parking facility. Too congested and you have to drive very slow for almost 100-200 m since pedestrians will be walking. They charge 10 rupees as parking fee. However, it is because of rush you might not enjoy the piece and ambience in the temple. If possible find a day and time when it is not too crowded and get the blessings of very powerful God here. It is very rare and special that Lord perumal is just behind Lord Shiva(Linga)....

  • Ancient shrine. Neatly maintained. Very calm and wonderful experience
