Saptha Sthana Sthalams / Temples of Mylapore, Chennai - Theerthapaleeswarar temple in Triplicane,Chennai,TN
Theerthapaleeswarar temple in Triplicane is the second Saptha Sthana Shiva temples of Mylapore in Chennai. Tthis is a very ancient temple and is considered to be one of the important temples in the history of Mylapore.
This temple is said to be around 500 years old. . The main deity of the temple is Theerthapaleeswarar[(Lord Shiva]. The temple is very small and you cannot find any other deities apart from Shiva in this temple.
One can find in this temple the divine energy of Mahaguru Agasthiar, teaching the Aditya Hridaya mantra to Lord Sri Rama.
I make it a point to visit this ancient and beautiful temple, so rich in its architecture, atleast once in six months. A temple worth visiting while in Mylapore, Chennai.
