Medicinal Temple in Chennai - Sri Andhaka Nivarani Ambaal Sameda Sri Oushadheeswarar (Marundheeswarar) Temple Tirukacchur, Chennai

Sri Andhaka Nivarani Ambaal (Sri Irul Neekki Ambaal) Sameda Sri Oushadheeswarar (Marundheeswarar) Temple , Tirukacchur, Chennai 

Lord Indra had a rare disease which cannot cured by his doctors - the Aswini Devas. The Ashwini devas then came to Tirukacchur to find some rare herbs and worshipped Lord Shiva here. They were unable to find the right herb that could cure Indira's ailment

Ashwini devas did penance here for twelve years and during the course of time they found that the plants, flowers and shrubs look the same in all seasons. They wondered how this can happen. Lord Shiva, doesn't want to test the patience of Aswini Devas and gave darshan there and told them that the soil of this Place itself is medicine. Hence marundeeshwar temple has a small place where one can collect the Soil and apply on Fore Head and drink with water

It is also said that Sage Agasthiyar worshipped Lord Marundheeswarar both at Thiruvaanmiyur and Thirukkachur and enriched his knowledge on Herbal Medicines

Pazhaya Seevaram Narasimha Temple / Tirumukkoodal Appan Venkatesa Perumal Temples

Pazhaya Seevaram Lakshmi Narashimhar Temple - A Santha Narasimha Temple

We have seen Narasimha mostly in Ugra posture and at times in Yoga posture. Pazhaya Seevaram on the banks of Palar is renowned for Santha (Peaceful) Narasimha temple

The temple is very well maintained by Gujaratis (All 'Doss' es were there in the plaques as Dharma KArthas.

Very near to this temple is Tirumukoodal Temple

Tirumukoodal Appan Venkatesa Perumal Temple

Tirumukoodal is where three rivers merge - Palar, Vedavati and Cheyyar.

This place is also called as Triveni Sangamam and the priest told us that this place is more auspicious than Allahabad

Appan Venkatesa Perumal is in Standing posture and is a trimurthi - with Locked Hairs ressembling Shiva, having Conch and Chakra of Vishnu and standing of Lotus like Brahma

This is also called Trimurthi KShetram
The temple is 'poorly' maintained by ASI (Archealogical Survey of India). The ASI's trademark Croton plants and cut grass makes the place more like a park than a temple

If ASI leaves this place to HR&CE it would be better

Temples near Chennai / Chengelpet GST Road - Thiru Idai Churam / ThiruvidaiChuram/ ThiruvidaiChoolam - Sacred Ancient Shiva Temple

ThiruIdaiChuram - Ancient Shiva Temple near Chengalpet / Thirukazhukundram

Thinking of a place where you can be close to Shiva. This is the one.. situated five kilometers of the Thirukazhukundaram Road this is a heaven on earth.

Surrounded by hills on all sides with few kittens around him and a lonely dedicated priest, the Lord Shiva and Lordess Parvati bless everyone in the pristine atmosphere

The temple is calm, neat and is full of vibration. We are blessed to have Director VK Kannan (9362408984) and Shaivite Vinod (9994151506) to take us there

Thiru Idaichuram (Thiruvadisoolam) is a small village surrounded by many hills. This village has an ancient temple for Lord Shiva.

The main deity here is Sri Gnanapureeswarar, also called as Idaichura Naadhar. Goddess here is Sri Govardhanaambigai
Legend has that this place is workshipped by Lordess Parvati in the form of Cow.

Thiru Gnana Sambandhar while on the way to ThiruKazhuKundram rested here and was offered food by Shiva disguised as a Sheperd. The Saint refused the food as he hadn't taken the darshan of Lord Shiva

Lord Shiva then showed his original form and blessed the Saint

Long back a King (Rajendra Chola) donated 230 acres of land in the name of Lord Shiva. Now the temple has nothing! The poojas are conducted with the help of donations trickling from the visitors.
