This Shivastalam is located 10 km east of Mannargudi.
This shrine is regarded as the 112th in the series of Tevara Stalams
in the Chola Region south of the river Kaveri.
Bhringi Munivar associated with the Ardhanareeswarar
legend is said to have assumed the form of a bee and worshipped Shiva (alone,
ignoring Parvati) here, hence the name Vanduturai. Ambal is also known as Satyhiyaya
Seshi. This temple has a 3 tiered Rajagopuram. There is a shrine
to Bhikshatanar. The niches around the garbhagriha are enshrined with
images of Ganesha, Dakshinamurthy, Ardhanaareeswara, Bhrahma and Durga.
Four worship services are offered each day here in this small temple.
