CHINNAMANUR- POOLANANDESWARAR TIRUKKOVIL

This sacred shrine is the gift of Rajasimha of Pandyan dynasty and has many legends exuding a unique spiritual aroma, linked up with the history of Kalpavriksha and Kamadhenu, the wish-yielding celestial objects of great fame. According to legends, the two were cursed to be born as commonplace objects by Lord Siva for attending the Dhakshayagna without His presence, though He was the yagnaphalabhokta. Kalpavriksha took its birth in this world as Jack tree, and Kamadhenu an ordinary cow; and was without adoration, much less recognition until upto the time of a Pandyan ruler who turned a great worshipper of Sivalinga that was found buried under the trunk of that cursed Kalpavriksha. As the sports of the Lord relieved many victims of this area along with the King himself, a big temple was built with a seven tired tower and many minishrines enshrining in addition to parivaradevathas, two Sivalingas - Poolanandiswara and Kanni Iswara. It has famous thirthas that have divine connections and also the source of the famous Surabhi river. Its puranic name was Harikesarinallur due to the worship made to Sivalinga by Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra. It was also called Rajasimheswara Udayar temple. Its fantastic past deserved visitation for the blessings of the archamurtis , who are infinitely merciful.

It lies on the Madurai Cumbum highway, accessible by bus from Madurai, Theni, Bodi etc.
