Iravadheeswarar Temple

Date of visit: 13-Nov-2010

Where (Location):

This temple is located in Big Kanchipuram near bus stand. Opposite to Kachabeswarar Temple.
Very small temple and hardly noticeable...It is bang opp to Kachabeswarar temple...There is a grill gate... if not locked, open it and get inside...Doesn't look to be visited by any one..!

What is special about this place :
  • Dilapidated..Needs restoration..!
  • Beautiful sculptures on the wall...getting mutilated..will get destroyed soon completely, if nothing is done soon.
  • Ancient and finds mention in Puranas
  • Not maintained...! The God is all alone here...with only a few bats to his company..!

Camera : Allowed ...! Who cares... no body is there to object...! 

What did I like of this place : 

  • The sculpting

Rating : Very Good..!

Note on the Rating :
The rating is in my opinion and may vary from person to person. The factors that I consider for my rating includes being ancient, architecture/Sculpture, Serenity of the place, Spiritual significance (reference in scriptures…etc), Enormity /Size/Magnitude.
