Dhenupureeswarar Temple - Review

This temple is also referred to as the Dhenupurisvara or the Thiripureeswarar, being dedicated to the lord Shiva; locally called as Dhenupureeswarar. This reference of Lord Shiva, in the region is derived from a belief that a cow here was given moksha to. The Shiva Lingham here is said to be Swayambhu or Self Manifested. 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, Chennai Reviews

  • One of the best temples I've visited in Chennai. Big and huge temple complex with a huge pond next to it. It's under ASI control. The temple is a ancient one and historic and carries legends about the place. Located in Madambakkam and not many people would know about it. You'll experience a positive energy and calmness once you step in to this temple. There is ample space for car parking.

  • Very nice temple to visit. Lord Shiva temple constructed during Chola kingdom. Well maintained. Must visit place

  • If I am stressed out, this is the place for me to go. Calm and peaceful environment. Open place around Praakaram gives place to sit for some time after darshan.

  • It's more than 1000 yrs old. It was built by Pallavaram. It does not have rajgopuram. The main deity is of Dhenpureeswarar and his consort. Every pradosham there is puja. The puja for sarveshwarar is done on Sunday afternoons.

  • If you want inner peace, you can visit this place. Calm and beautiful environment and surroundings.
