  • Thenupuriswarar Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Shiva located in the holy village of Patteeswaram, Tamil Nadu, India. Shiva is worshiped as Thenupuriswarar and also called as pattieswarar since the lord was worshipped by kamadhenu daughter Patti. Patteeswaram, near Kumbakonam is famous for its Durga temple. This temple is fairly big and well-maintained one.  There are five majestic gopurams (towers).  The temple seems to have been built and rebuilt several times with additions made to the original temple at various times.  The evidence of this is in the temple’s architecture which has the styles of the Pallavas, Cholas and the Nayaks. The presiding deity at this temple is Dhenupureeswarar and his consort is Gyanambigai.
  • Old Siva temple. Lots of statues are available in Natarajar mandapam. Hanuman statue nade by one whole Atthi tree is famous one. Backside of the Siva temple there is a place where Siddhars and saints did penance and meditation. If you look atop The ceiling above Nandhi you can see the Sivalinga drawing. If you see the drawing in front of Nandhi the waterway i.e thoombu will look at your side. So is in front of Nandhi. The waterway changes when you change the sides.
  • Beautiful temple. Very divine place to visit get blessed.
