VAITHEESWARAN KOIL

The beautiful temple is enclosed within tall granite walls and is in the centre of the town. In the east and western sides of the temple, there are big majestic towers and
there is one small tower on the rear side of the temple. There are two big corridors and separate inner corridors for the temple of God and Goddess.

The Deity enshrined here is known as Vaidyanatha Eswarar and Goddess is Tayyalnayaki Devi. There are many minor deities along the corridors of the temple. As we enter from the western entrance we see two Dhwajastambha (pillars), one of gold and the other of silver, and east of the western outer corridor there is the deity Kumara Guruparaswami and in thenorthern corridor Selvamuttukumaraswami is enshrined in a small temple adorned with a small tower.
