 Greatness Of Temple:

Lord Nandeeswara in the temple is 7 feet tall, 10 feet long covering a circumference of 16 feet.  Many types of Alankaras are followed including sandal paste application. People pray for total peace in life.

  Temple History:

Lord Shiva performs His cosmic dance during the Pradosha time (said to be between 4.30 p.m. and 6.00 p.m. every day) in between the two horns of Sri Nandi.  Seeking darshan of Lord Shiva and going round the prakara during this time is equal to one crore rounds.  The devotee should worship the Lord through the horns of Nandi.  As Nandi alone is in this temple, this methodical worship brings double benefit to the devotee.


This is a sub-temple attached to Sri Thayumanaswami Temple in Trichy Fort, built during the chola period.  It is also said that the Nandhi known as Adhikara Nandhi was part of the Thayumanavar temple.  As the pathways to the temple were blocked in later days, Nandi was isolated from the main temple and thus became a temple by itself.  Pujas are presently performed to Nandi alone.
