- TIRUNETRALINATHAR TIRUKKOVIL
fascinating legend of this holy temple is associated with the
celebrated saiva saint Tirugnanasambhandar. The sthalapurana
narrates that once the saint passionately yearned to see Lord Vishnu
in the form of Siva and did penance here. Contented Mahavishnu gave
him darsan in Siva's form. The saint in ecstatic joy sang many
songs. There are two temple here - one for Lord Vishnu called Odu
Vurakeswarar and another for Lord Siva going by the name of
Tirunetralinathar. Another shrine laying out side the campus is
called Mukteeswar koil and it is equally famous.
ancient saiva kshetra redolent of HariHara mahima is lying 10 km off
Kanchipurarn accessible by bus and taxi.
