Reviewed February 26, 2014

One of the oldest Shiva Temple having own entity. This temple has a entrance having iron pipes column. This is so well blended with iron facade, it take time to make out the difference. Since i was posted for few months, i didnt take any guide, its was an interesting find for me. Temple is quite big and has a lovely elephant, who is always ready to bless anybody :)

Its by default the center of attraction if you visit Tirunelveli. It is also at the heart of the town.
It is a very huge temple with lot a big stone sculptures.
Also here is a speciality, The Lord Govindar and The Lord Nellaiyappar(Shiva) have two seperate sanctums next to each other.
But Major thing is THE MUSICAL PILLARS, they are great indications that our ancestors had a Great knowledge about architectures and scultpures.

Great, clean superb temple with lovely images, carvings and musical pillars. A must visit for anyone who loves the grandeur, history and religiosity of the great South Indian temples. Every visit is a discovery....this is truly the House of the Gods!
