  • This temple is dedicated to one of the navagraha (buthan). Taken holy bath is very special in this temple Agni theertham, soiriya theertham, santhira theertham available
  • The sense of space strikes the visitor first. The temple is set well back from the entrance and there is literally a red carpet laid out to protect the feet from the heat of the sun. The huge temple tank to the left as one enters is full, indicating that the area is abundant with rains. To the right is a 100 pillared hall. The Budan shrine is not visible immediately, and, after small temples, one sees the abode of Swetharanyeswarar. Behind that is the shrine of Brahma Vidyambigai. To the right lies the sanctum sanctorum of Budan. Other shrines are to Agora Murthy and Nataraja, both forms of Siva. This place is called Adi Chidambaram because Nataraja performed his dance here first. Special prayers for children originate from the experience of Achyutha Kalappalar, who was childless. His horoscope was studied by his guru, a Sivacharya. As was the practice then (and even now), it was read using ancient palm leaf manuscripts.
  • Very ancient temple built by dravidian architects when the country was ruled by enlightened kings.!
