How to reach:
This temple is to the south west of the pond a couple of roads away. The locals know it ads easwaran koil or rudran koil.
To quell the koti asuras who emanated from Kashyapa rishi Shiva let loose a koti rudrakshas from his chest who killed the asuras. To atone for the sin of killing them the rudras prayed here and were pardoned.
THe sthalavruksham is the sara kondrai
The inner praharam has a East facing shiva and south facing Ambal Rudrakoteeswari ambal .
. The Koshta vigrahas and four savants are represented in statue form It is believed that each prayer is multipled one crore times here hence it is a very sacred place for lazy people like me to pray!!
