Part of the Ashtalingam on the Girivalam route, this is the fifth lingam, after Niruthilingam on the west direction. It is believed that praying here will get rid off illness. Girivalam is one of the unique experience of a life time.

Varuna lingam is the 5th of ashta lingams in girivallam. It comes between Niruthi lingam and Aadi Annamalar temples. Though there is Surya lingam before this, it's not part of Ashta lingams. Do not miss to have darshan Lord annamalar in the form of Varuna.
