Sundareswarar Temple



Main Deity : Sundareswarar.

Ambal : Komalambigai.

Temple History : Once a Chola king was worried about her daughter’s face which looked like a fox’s  face.  He worshipped many temples to cure her face and finally reached to Nangavaram.  That day  night Goddess appeared in his dreams and told him to get the Shiva linga from Kasi.  She said the  Linga is with a sage named Agandeeswarar and bring that here.  Agandeeswarar was worshipping a  linga once in 30 days.  Chola king took the linga when the sage was in a deep meditation and brought  it to Nangavaram.  When the sage woke up from his meditation he realized that the linga was missing  and figured out it had gone to Nangavaram.  He also arrived to Nangavaram with the aim to take back  the linga.  Lord Shiva appeared in the sage Agandeeswarar’s dream and told him to stay at  Nangavaram itself and continue to worship him here instead of carrying back the linga.  The sage also  stayed at Nangavaram.  The princess’s face got changed like a normal girl.  As the Lord Shiva cured  girl’s face the place was called as Nangai varam initially and later it became Nangavaram.
