Tholeeswarar Rajendrachozhagam is an ancient east facing temple that is in need of attention as many parts are dilapidated and falling off. Thankfully we found that some people have taken up the cause and work seems to be going on, albeit slowly. Tholeeswarar Rajendrachozhagam is a stone and brick structure with many old sculptures and carvings. Vestiges of a grand old temple remains in the form of mantaps and inscriptions. The temple is filled with many lemon trees.
