Thiruvamathur – Abirameshwarar Temple


Abirameshwarar Temple is located near Villupuram. It is a 7th century CE Pallava shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva and his consort Muthambikai. This is the 21st Shiva temple in the ancient division of Tamilnadu, the Nadunaadu region that is featured in the Thevaram hymns of the big four of Tamil literature: Thirunavukarasarar (Appar), Sambandar, Sundarar and Arunagirinathar.

On the right side of the Chennai-Tiruchi Road, near the bypass of Villupuram a board shows the way through a small road to this temple. It would be approximatelt 2 to 3 km from the highway.
