Agasteeswarar Appur is an ancient temple which has been neglected and almost lost over time. The Lingam is seen in the lone sanctum. There are some wonderful carvings of the snake, tortoise and fishes on the ceiling of the Artha Mantapa. At the entrance on either side are beautiful carvings of Ganesha and Karthikeya. There is a Kalyana Venkatesa Perumal temple also in the same compound though this looks like a later addition.
