Venkatachalapathi Pattamadai is a small east-facing temple with a single Prakaram. A concrete gateway leads into the temple. A Mahamantapam and Ardhamantapam leads into the Sanctum Sanctorum. The entire inner Prakaram is covered on top. Strangely there are two Venkatachalapathi temples and two Shiva temples in this village with the same names created due to some local dispute in the olden days.

Varadaraja Perumal Tharuvai is 20 kilometers southwest of Tirunelveli. There are 2 temples with the same name in the village and we suggest you visit both. The one featured here is the one in the eastern side. There are 2 Shiva temples here also with the same name. Pattamadai is famous for mats of a very high quality right from regular ones to fine silky mats and various other products. The local shops stock them, but we suggest you buy from the society office that has placed direction sign boards in the highway and important junctions to get the right prices.
