PAZHAVERKADU ( PULICAT ) – A TRAVEL TO CHOZHA PERIOD SHIVA TEMPLES AND DUTCH HERITAGE SITES – THATHAIMANJI SRI PARINTHURAIESWARAR AND KATTUR SRI VALEESWARAR

16th March, 2016.
After our darshan of Sri Paleeswarar we decided to return back to Chennai.   Instead of continuing further we return back for about 3 KM and taken the route to Minjur through Kattur.  While crossing the place called Thathaimanji my friend stopped near a shiva temple  found to be of recently constructed. But when we went inside the temple  and found the temple was very old may be 300 to 400 years  and reconstructed latter keeping the mandapam old pillars.

The Gurukkal  told us there is also an old temple at  Kattur on our way back to home. On the way to Shiva temple we had the darshan of Sri Vainkundavas Perumal.

SRI VAIKUNDAVASA PERUMAL TEMPLE - KATTUR
Vaikundavasa Perumal temple is facing west with a Rajagopuram on the south side. Thayar Vaikundavalli is not in a separate sannadhi but  in the mandapam of main sanctum. Garudalwar is in front of moolavar.  There are separate sannadhi for Ramar and Sakkarathalwar.

The Shiva temple temple is at the end of the  street and it welcomed us with the Sharp Rajagopuram  on the east side. We could not obtain more information about the temple and sanctum was closed, keeping the Rajagopuram main gate open.
