Temple a day-Thyagarajaswamy

Vadivudai Amman Udanurai Thiagarajaswamy Temple, Tiruvottiyur

North Chennai is the industrial face of Chennai city as it has a large number of refineries and transport companies.

Also, it has a dense population. Vadudai Amman Udanurai Thiagaraja Swami Temple is located in Thiruvottiyur, a prime area of ​​North Chennai.

Vadivudai Amman, who has arisen in this place as the form of wisdom power, blesses her devotees to become wise and knowledgeable in this world.

Uchi Morning Puja

Also, every day, during the early morning puja, he wears a red saree and offers jackfruit to the goddess to grant all the wishes of the devotees.

As this temple is believed to have been built for the first time in the world, Lord Shiva who has risen here is known as Adipuriswarar (first form of Lord Shiva).

In appearance, Moolava resembles Thiruvarur Thyakesar and is known as Thyagaraja Swami.

The temple has preserved its ancient character intact. As soon as we enter the temple, we can feel the divine calm environment welcoming us.

Also, the fact that the Koil prakara footpath is located on the sandy beach is a great opportunity in a city like Chennai.

Walking on the sand is soothing and soothing to our feet. While enjoying it, one can reach the Ganesha shrine.

Ganesha God

As the name suggests, devotees will be offered darshan of the face-faced deity, sartha mala to the goddess and a special darshan entry ticket for Rs.25.

With benevolent eyes and a beautiful appearance, we can have a darshan of the goddess from very close quarters, with tears of joy in our eyes. It is also good to offer kunguma to the goddess.

From there, just a few steps away, one can have darshan of Thyagaraja Swamy. Applying the vibhuti obtained as prasadam on our forehead, we can reach the shrine of Adipureeswarar (the first form of Lord Shiva).


He is also known as Faktar Vidankar and Picapakka Nader. In the Adipureeswarar inner prakaram, there are 63 shrines of Nayanmars, Dakshinamurthy, Durgai Amman, Vishnu, Adi Sankara and Vattapirai Amman.

Many surprises await us in the exterior of the temple. There are 27 lingams for 27 Nakshatras. Devotees worship the lingams for their stars.

Also, in the outer prakaram, Vakara Kali, open-air Akasa Lingam, Annamalaiyar, Nagalingam, Bala Shiva, Kalahastiswarar, Bhairava and Subramanyar grace the devotees in a separate sanctum.
