DHARMAPURAM - SRIDHARMAPUREESWARAR  TIRUKKOVIL

This holy place is blessed with several unique features, deserving to be regarded as the principal shrine of the Adhinam; not because of the important decisions about the conduct of prayers services in the 27 Adhinam temples are originated here; nor is it situated in the close proximity to the palatial building, serving as the residential quarters of His Holiness, presiding over the destinies with his office in it; but because of the fact, here lies the Bilva tree under the shade of which flourished the Agasthyasram during the days of H.H. Sri-La-Sri Gurugnanasambandar, the Founder of Adhinam. Secondly it was here Yama, the God od Death worshipped the Lord in expiation of the . sin of enrobing the Linga in his vain attempt -to take the life of Markandeya at Tirukadavur. Thirdly it is adorned with several rare sculptural pieces in and out of the temple, like the image of Mother Durga revealing in her rare form of sixteen hands. A grand soul lifting sight that remains locked up in the viewers for ever. And finally this shrine's architectural excellences, beautified with superb sculptural pieces serve a feast to the eyes.

It contains several minishrines holding the worshipful Saivate gods, like Mother Parvathi, Vinyaka, Muruga, Dhakshinamurti, Chandikeswarar, Lingodbhava murti, Nandi etc. for the benefit of worship. The craftsmanship of the sculptors with its perfect execution and polish detains the viewers time longer than needed. The archamurti - the black granite linga with its size and decoration enchants the visitors, who involuntarily let out `Harahara Mahadev' at its first sight. On account of efficient supervision and fine maintenance, in addition to the spick and span of the environs in and out of the temple complex, it raises the hands of the bhaktas, as they move round for worship. It serves as the best specimen of supreme dedication and superb upkeep, deserving emulation by all the temples.

It lies in the Adhinam head quarters mansion and accessible by four wheelers from Mailaduthurai commanding all facilities
