 Greatness Of Temple:

The reputation of the temple is beyond descriptions.  On visiting the temple once, a devotee or a historian will only be appalled to see its beauty, structure, design and the points of shrines housing a number of Gods and Goddess of the Hindu cult.  There is a three tier Vimana-inner tower - above the sanctum sanctum sanctorum with 42 dolls, including Lord Vishnu on the Adisesha, Brahmma on the Lotus speak volumes of the Bhakthi of the artists engaged in the work.  A Kasi Vilwa tree, though dried completely without signs of re-growing is in the temple with all fertility and a new birth.  The workmanship of the granite ground deserves all honour to the workers.  Lord Dakshinamurthi with His harp (Veena) and disciples would linger in our eyes for ever.

  Temple History:

Tiruputhur has a proud history which was built during the period of Varaguna Pandian.  It was called Navapuram and Noothana Gramam meaning newly developed places.  It bears the name Kondrai Vanam as it then had dense trees of this name.  Many ant-hills were here and the place was named Valmikipuram.  Puttrur means place with ant-hills.  Hence the name Tiruputtur.  Presiding deity Kulangarai Kootha Ayyanar appears majestically on a 1.5 tall phallus.
