Saiva kshetra is one of the reputed holy places, where Lord Siva
married Parvathi, according to Sthalagna. The belief is current that
mental anguish caused by delayed marriages, due to the sins of the
past standing in the way of fixation of weddings and abrupt
cancellation of alliances take to flight, if prayers to the
presiding deities are offered. Here are installed there most
worshipful deities - Siva, Parvathi and ,Ganesh on the same dais.
Newly wedded couples, who are relieved from the worries preying on
them for years visit this kshetra and express their gratitude
through elaborate prayer services. And is always throbbing with the
victims of wedding problems. A visit worthy place. The temple is
quite an old one having imposing tower, sturdy prakara and many
lies near Papanasam town on the main road to Kumbhakonam from
Chidambaram. And enjoys bus and train conveyances.
