3. POOVIRUNDAVALLI-(Poonamallee)-SEVVAI-Angaraka-Mars

Poonamallee @ Poovirundhavalli - Sevvai - Mars

Thayal Nayagi Udanurai Vaitheesaran Koil ( Goddess named as Thayal Nayagi and the Shiva called as Vaideeswaran, is the Sevvai @ Angaraka Kshetram – (Mars) .

The temple is lavish, big and well maintained. Here the temple has a separate Sevvai Padam (legs) and a statue of the Sthala Vruksha Thaazhi Panai Maram (Thazhi Palm) and also 3 Chakrams which were established here by the Adi Shankara (Sri Chakram, Subramania Chakram, Shanmuga Chakram) near the Subramania Swami Sannidhi.
The munmandapam near the Shiva Shrine has beautiful carvings on the roof. The South entrance has some interesting sculptures on either side.

The temple tank needs to be cleaned.

Comments:
I have visited this temple number of times since iam from poonamallee. Right from my childhood i went to this temple along with my parents. Thew lord vaitheeswaran is most powerful here and your sincere prayer will really have an answer. The speciality of this temple is ,this temple is Sevvai or Angaraka Kshetram.
There is special pooja for angaraka on tuesdays. similarly the other speciality in this temple is during month of march, the rays of the sun falls on the sanctom sanctorum in the morning for about five days continuosly.
This is called as "surya pooja" or the worship of Shiva by Sun god. It lasts for about 5 or 6 mins every day during that five day pooja. I am very lucky to see the surya pooja for nearly 5 or 6 times.
The another speciality in this temple is "Viduthalai Sani" that is here the Saneeswaran is standing separately facing east. This is very rare, the one like thirunallar. Why the name "Viduthalai Sani" is given? The reason is, opposite to him both nala and damayanthi are standing and here is the place where nala got relieved from sani.

Dear Sri,
Please visit the blog http://templesrevival.blogspot.com.

While going to poonamallee, ask for Sivan Kovil Street, Vaitheeswaran Kovil, before bus stand. Anybody would guide you. Especially ask the flower vendors.

I visited the Temple today, Maha Sivarathri Day, with my family. As others say it is a beutifull temple with beautiful carvings. The darshan of the three Chakkaras installed by Adhi Sankara is very invigorating.I hope I can visit the temple on SURYA POOJA DAYS next year
 
For those who visit to perform the Angaraka Sevvai, a noteworthy point is that the puja is performed on the 1st and the 3rd Tuesdays of every month at 1pm
 
HI,

I WOULD LIKE TO VISIT THAT TEMPLE FOR DOING POOJA FOR CHEVVAI..I'M FROM KARNATAKA SO ANY ONE PLEASE HELP ME WITH THE ADDRESS.
 
There is a Hotel by name - Sadabhishekam in this place. Good one to stay and for Food as well.
This is place is about 250 Kms from Tamil Nadu.
 
You can consider staying in Hotel Sadabhishekam located close to the temple. This place is about 250 Kms by road. Route - Chennai - Dindivanam - Panruti - Sethiathoppu - Chidambaram Bye pass - Vaitheesawaran Koil. Careful about the brokers wandering around the temple.
