Sthala puranam and temple information
This is a small temple built in the early Pandya style, though not much is available by way of sthala puranam.
The temple itself is rather simple – there are two sannidhis – one each of Kasi Viswanathar and His consort Sivakami Amman, and a Nandi facing Siva. The temple faces east, and is located on the banks of the Tambraparani river. There is a koshtam for Dakshinamurti, but aside from this, there seem to be no other deities in the temple or on the koshtam walls.
