Allur Shri Panchanadishwarar temple

Allur was the centre of Vedic learning in the past.This is comparitively a big temple in this area but sadly not very popular.The lord here is Panchnadishwarar with Dharmasamvardhini ambal

How to reach:

Along the Trichy Karur kulitalai road at about 10 kms you can see the temple on the left hand side
