Vaaseesar Temple at Tiruppachur near Chennai
(Paadal Petra Stalam)

Deities: Vaaseesar (Paasoor Nathar, Shiva)

This beautiful temple of Shiva is at Tiruppachur near Tiruvalangadu and Tiruvellur, a railhead to the West of Madras.This temple remains locked most of the time owing to the lack of adequate patronage and staff as per accounts of the villagers nearby. This temple is very ancient and is associated with Karikala Cholan and later with the Saivite Saints who glorified it with their poetry.

Access and Accomodation: Tiruvalloor, Chennai, Tiruttani
