Located at Thiruvenkadu(one of the Navagraha Sthalams), this very old temple is dedicated to Lord Budhan or Planet Mercury who is said to bestow wisdom and intellect. This temple is also known as The Swetaranyeswarar Temple. It's a very big temple that has a lot of deities including Lord Shiva each with it's own significance.

Lord Budhans temple is behind the main temple. Go with a green cloth when you visit - that is the custom. This is a nice and clean temple in the rural hinterland of... More

Much better than Vaideeswaran Temple , Cleanly maintained Very Big with Two temple ponds ( agni and Moon) Lord Budan was wearing Green and felt the blessing. Travelled from Sirkali via Bus. You can see Poombuhar beach and Kethu temple both are with 10 km. Lord Bhdan is responsible for Education, knowledge and Intelligence.
