An ancient temple believed to be built in10th century by Chola kings is a marvelous identity of Indian architecture. The temple looks a little different without a usual Kupuram at the entrance. Must visit for architecture lovers!!!

A 800 year old temple frequented by locals, the temple hold its charm for the sincerity exuded by its devotees. Do visit on Sunday evening by 4.30 PM to participate in the Sarabeswarar Rahu kala puja quite popular in this temple.

This is one of the very oldest temple which is constructed during the chola king period. Every sunday sarabeswarar pooja will be performed during rahu kalam time which is 4.30pm to 6pm. Lord shiva is swayambu.
