Thiruvothur (Cheyyar) – Vedapureeswarar Temple

Cheyyar is located 30 km from Kanchipuram. A must to see temple.

The temple is devoted to Lord Vedapuresswarar who came here and imparted his spiritual knowledge regarding the Vedas. According to legend, it is in this sacred place that Saint Thirugnanasambanthar used his holy miraculous powers and transformed a male palm tree into a female palm tree.


The temple has some unique distinctions compared to other Siva temples. The Nandi, which usually faces the Siva lingam, is facing the main gate. Also, one can worship all the Pancha Bootha lingams in this temple.
