Abhinambikai Abhimuktheshwarar temple- Padal petra sthalam- Lalitha Trisadhi temple

On the Kumbakonam Thiruvarur route after tirucherai is the almost forgotten temple now in very sad state. It is a padal petra sthalam sung by Appar and the place where Hyagreevar explained to Agasthya the Lalitha Trisadi manthiram.
When I visited the temple It was locked as the goats would have a free run. The very active wife of the priest opened the temple for me and I spent peaceful time inside.DSC04740
