About Marundeeswarar Temple

The famous Marundeeswarar Temple of Chennai, dedicated to Shiva, lies adjacent to the beach of Bay of Bengal in Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai. The temple has been glorified down the ages in verse right from the times of the Nayanars (Saivite Saints), Appar and Tirugnana Sambandar through the 7th and 8th centuries. The temple was widely expanded in the 11th century by the Chola kings The temple sprawling over one acre is majestically adorned with two seven tiered gateway towers and a huge sacred tank. The one and a half feet tall Shivalingam of the temple is considered a Swayambhu - ie a self-manifested one. People with disease are said to seek blessings at the Marundeeswarar temple, as it is said to be curative.
