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.
