velleeshwarar temple Mylapore

This is also one of the saptha rishi temples worshipped by Rishi aangeerasa. The temple is situated in the south mada street next to the kapaaleshwara temple


The entrance actually leads to the  Selva Vinayakar', sannidhi facing the south , with his consorts Sidhi and Budhi. Other deities worshipped here are Kasi Viswanathar, Ulagalandha Perumal, Vaishnavi, Lakshmi and Saraswati.

To the west is the main sanidhi of Sri Kasi vishwanathar and A small lingam can be seen in the sanctum sanctorum.

Facing the south is a small elegant image of Goddess Kamatchi with a Sri Chakram installed behind in a seperate sannidhi.

The next praharam is to the east and is actually a covered hall which has the Nandi, Dwaja sthambam. To the right of the nandi is the Sarabeshwarar sannidhi with a durgai also installed along with a veerabhadrar

There is a shrine dedicated to Sukracharya, the guru of Asuras, on the outer praakara.

As can be expected in a market place the place is buzzing with activities and is having a very divine atmosphere
