Sundareswarar Ilayarasanendal is an ancient dilapidated temple that has gone into neglect. The beautiful sanctum sanctorum of the main deity, his consort, and a mandapam are all that is left of this once large temple. All the other deities are in the open without shelter. Even the locals either do not know of this temple or are reluctant to guide you as the encroachments around hide it from view mostly. Sundareswarar Ilayarasanendal requires urgent attention from well-wishers if the temple has to be saved from further damage.
