Description:This Shivastalam is located to the South of Tiruvarur, 9 km east of the Maavur road railhead. This shrine is regarded as the 120th in the series of Tevara Stalams in the Chola Region south of the river Kaveri.

Legends: Shiva is said to have accepted worship from a devout woman (whose family objected to her religious faith ) to a fixture used to tie calves in the cattleshed; hence the name Kanraappu. Hidimba is said to have worshipped here.

This temple occupies an area of about an acre and a half. This east facing temple has a 3 tiered Rajagopuram. Four worship services are offered here each day and the annual Bhrammotsavam is held in the month of Vaikasi.  ..
