 General Information:

The temple is built completely with marble stones.  Sun God is facing east in the Navagraha shrine.  Lord Shiva and Mother Meenakshi are in separate shrines in the prakara facing east.  Lord Bhairava, Mother Durga, Lord Brahmma, Lingodhbava, Panchalingas and  63 Saivite Nayanmars are in the prakara.  It is noteworthy that the famous Kondathu Kaliamman temple is near this temple.  Lord Vinayaka in the temple is praised as Anukkai Vinayaka.


Devotees pray to Lord and Mother offering vastras to conquer enemies.  It is the faith of the devotees that worshipping in Somaskanda temples as this one would wipe off doshas on wedding efforts and on children.  Based on this principle, many remedial pujas are performed in this temple.  Fathers and sons worship here for good relationship.

Thanks giving:
  Devotees perform abishek offering vastras to Lord and Mother. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

The temple is open only after sunrise as it is believed that Sun God and Devas worship the Lord early in morning.  As Lord Shiva is pleased with those worshipping His devotees, people pray to Sun God first.  This is a temple that emphasizes the importance of Sun worship.  It is believed that all adverse planetary   effects would disappear if one worships Sun first and go to Lord Shiva next.


Lord Dakshinamurthy graces in a sitting form under the banyan tree on the sanctum wall facing south.  On the opposite side, Lord Subramania graces in a standing form with six hands in an obedient style respecting His Father in the form of Lord Dakshinamurthy.


Lord Shiva is facing west in the sanctum sanctorum.  The Avudayar-stage on which Linga is placed- is on the right side.  Mother Soundaravalli graces from Her shrine on the left side in a standing form.  In between, Lord Shanmuga Subramanya graces with His peacock vehicle with its face turning left.  Valli and Deivanai are with Muruga.  This is known as Somaskanda form.  Around the ghoshta wall of Muruga shrine, we can see five forms of the Lord as Karthikeya, Balasubramania, Dandayuthapani, Kumara Subramania and Bala Muruga.

  Temple History:

Three powerful demons, Tharaka, Kamalakshan and Vidyunmali played all atrocities against the Devas who could not resist their powers.  They sought the help from Lord Shiva for protection.  Lord advised them to perform penance on Him.  They installed a Linga and followed Lord’s advice.  Lord waged a war against the three demons and saved the Devas.  As He served the cause of the Amara (Devas), He is praised as Amara Pani Easwara – Amara-Devas, Pani-service and Easwara-God.
