Other Deities

All deities are safeguarded in a shed nearby – Two Shiva Lingams, two goddess idols, Vinayaka, Dakshinamurthy, Muruga with consorts and Nandi.

Agasteeswarar Vayalogam is an ancient temple that has completely dilapidated today. It is not advisable to enter inside due to the unstable structure and the risk of snakes. The idols have all been taken out and preserved safely in a shed outside. All the structures are damaged and infested with wild growth including the Vimaanam.

Agasteeswarar Vayalogam was cleaned up by a group of volunteers somewhere in 2017 and the information below was gleaned from their observations in the media. The inscriptions found here are said to mention that the temple was built over a thousand years ago. Developments have been done by Kulothunga Chola III and Kulasekhara Pandya. The inscriptions also provide information about donations made to the temple. But when we visited in 2022 the condition of the temple was even worse than what we saw in the earlier photographs of 2017.
