Padi Sivan Temple - Review
The Padi neighbourhood of Chennai and its temple of Tiruvalleeswarar is of high religious significance owing to the fact that the Tamil saints came here to sing songs. More so because one of the most influential Tamil poets, Thirungyana Sambandar was inspired in the premises of this temple, to compose songs. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Along with the main deity of Tiruvalleeswarar, you will also find an idol of the female deity Jagathambikai. Other stone sucpltures inside include the Sun God, Dakshinamoorthy, Mahavishnu and more religious and spiritual figures.

Padi Sivan Temple, Chennai Reviews
This is an age old temple around 300 years, and has been renovated and well maintained. This place is known as a 'Guru sthal'.
One of iconic spot of thondai mandalam, and padal petra sthalam. Near to Padi TVS Lucas, temple is dedicated to lord Shiva, As per hindu mythology sage bhradwaj,(well known from mahabharatha father of guru dhronacharya, grandfather of aswathama,) he pleaded lord Shiva to learn the four veda with clear understanding of it. Lord Shiva blessed him to learn this as a vulture (வல்லூறு). Same as came as lord Shiva shrine name as valeeshwar. This temple has been built with dravidan architecture.
It is Guru sthalam. Guru bagawan is sitting on a elephant here. For people who wants to get married or do good business or to study well, can come here and take the blessings of Lord Guru.
Quiet place. Spacious car parking. Well maintained nandavanam
very peace and good temple with all positive vibes of lord Shiva and Parvathi. Well maintained and also a place for lots of pigeons, chitirai function is one of the best functions celebrated in this temple.....
