Kuntheeswarar Dharmapuram is an old east facing temple which is very badly broken down. A large Peepal Tree is growing on the main shrine which is said to be awaiting renovation and hence the main deity has been moved to an adjoining chamber. The same is the case for the goddess too. All the niches for the deities around the sanctum sanctorum are empty – may be removed for safety. A very old priest is serving here sincerely.
