A very unique temple; the primary Deity is the Durga - the Sannidhi is right in front when we enter the temple. The idol is extremely pretty and the best part is the level of sincerity that I observed in the pooja and other rituals being performed. Shiva's shrine is inside; another interesting feature is, in every Shiva temple, Nandi... More

The Durga here is majestic and very powerful. Centrally located in the ancient headquarters of Cholas. This temple also has separate shrine for Shiva named Dhenupureeswarar.

Patteswaram - 4 kms from Darasuram. This is a temple of Goddess Durga. Shiva is called Thenupuriswarar in this temple. There was no crowd when we went around 8 AM and had a very relaxed dharshan. Temple is open from 6 AM to 1 PM; 4 PM to 9 PM.

This is the temple where NANDI is moved from his place to give SHIVA a direct view to see the GANASAMBHANDAR ( one out of four NAYANMARHAL) while he visited this temple. He was given a warm welcome by Shiva's Bhoothakarangal. Also famous for VISHNU DURGAI, a separate Shrine in the same compound.
