What is FindMyTemple?
FindMyTemple is a small attempt to bring you closer to the temples of Tamil Nadu. We have focused on two key aspects - one, getting you rich information on the history, mythology and logistics of temples. Two, helping you reach these temples and perform rituals that each temple is renowned for. To achieve this, we travel to temples, explore the history and literature surrounding the temples and document everything we could find in articles. Explore all the temples from the menu at the top. We also welcome suggestions regarding the content of these articles. Just click on the feedback link in the footer and submit your tips for us.
Learning about great temples
Articles on each temple are structured to get you information on the history and legacy of the temples. The articles explain the prominence and 'wow factor' for each temple. We have also attempted to get you information useful for travelling to the temples, such as the trains that take you to each holy abode, the address and other contact information. These are possibly the most detailed collection of information on the temples of Tamil Nadu.
