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.
Other information for your visit
The temple is located adjacent to the twin-temples of Anjel Srinivasa Perumal and Dasavatara Perumal. The same priest officiates at both temples, and is typically available only in the mornings.
