  • The temple is very ancient and blissful. Good to go in the early morning around 7 am. Please buy Lotus flowers and also available at the entrance. You also can worship other Navagraha deities inside the temple. The priests need to raise the standard of the temple by their positive behaviour
  • Yes I was there...Excellent hindu temple dedicated to lord sun god.Devotees visit this temple for being heatlhy , religious and simple minded. Many pray here for winning wars....To win against the opponent many devotes visit this temple.Being the head of our solar system many pray for getting rid from prolong disease.
  • (Be AWARE All the POOJA ITEMS are available within Temple. NO NEED To Buy at OUTSIDERS) The place which is especially for 9 planets.. Here Lord guru is getting knowledge transferred from Sun directly.. If you are looking stable business., Good Marks in your studies.. Go there and do archana to the nine planets with hope.. That works..
  • In terms of religious importance, these NAVAGRAHA temples place a very important role for the Hindu community. The faith is so strong among the people of Hinduism on these temples.
  • It is a Navagraha temple on the Mayiladuthurai_Kallanai state highway and a holy shrine for the Hindus.Great saints like Gnanasambandar and Thiruvarur had sung compositions.Other shrines worth seeing are Thirumangalakkudi,and Thiruvelvikkudi.They are all on the same road.
