PATTESWARAM

After doing this Rama got redemption from his Chaya Dosha. Near the well there is the image of Hanuman, the monkey chief of the battalion of Sri Rama on
his journey to Lanka.

As usual there is a holy tank in front of the temple, having an image of Vinayaka, the elephant-headed God of learning, the eldest son of Siva and Parvati at the Creation of Universe. The name of the Vinayaka is Ajna Ganapati.

At the northern entrance to the temple there is the deity Goddess Durga. It is considered to be the most powerful deity in the locality, Originally the Chola kings installed and worshipped this Goddess in their fort. After the fall of the Chola Empire, the idols of the four deities were removed and installed inside the Patteswaram temple.
