Located in the Thiruvanmiyur area of Chennai, this is a very old Shiva temple dating back to the Chola period. A serene and spacious temple, it attracts a lot of devotees and is easily accessible. The temple complex also houses shrines of Ganesha, Kartik and Parvati. The temple is open from 5.30 in the morning till noon, and again from 4.30pm till 9.30pm

At the heart of Thiruvanmiyur, opposite to the bus stand, is the imposing Marundeeswarar temple. As the name echoes, this is a shiva who cures diseases, a name he got for teaching magical medicine to sage Agasthya. Legend has it that Sage Valmiki who wrote the Ramayana was cured of an ailment here. You can see many people praying and lighting lamps beneath a tree where Shiva is said to have given darshan to the Saints. This is a beautifully maintained temple. The linga is a swayambhoo (appeared on its own). There is another shrine for Goddess. Ganesha, Subrahmanya, have their own shrines. There is a huge tank outside the premises and one within the premises which is well maintained. The temple attracts lots of people and is crowded on all days.
Place: Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai
Landmark: Opposite to the busstand on ECR
Nearby: Thiruvanmiyur beach is cleaner than Marina. There is a temple dedicated to Valmiki in the middle of the road, opposite to the busstand

An age old temple in Chennai which is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the main deity being called Lord Marundheeswarar ('Marundhu' in Tamil means Medicine). Hence, the Lord here is believe to be the God of Medicine and people who visit here with faith are relieve of health issue and blessed with good health. The temple area contains trees and herbs that are of medicinal value that the mere presence in the temple for some duration will benefit one's health and mind.
I always feel at peace and rejuvenated whenever I visit this temple.

Every morning cow poojai here is very auspicious

Lord Marundeeswarar is known so because he taught sage Agastya about some magical medicine. Since then the Marundeeswarar temple has been a place of worship for people with diseases and various problems with their health. It is said that even The Sage Valmiki, who wrote The Ramayana, came here to The Marundeeswarar temple to worship The Lord.
