Thiruvanneeswarar Thirumudivakkam is an ancient temple which has been completely rebuilt in recent times. Some of the Idols including the main deity are ancient. We were told that some of the original old pillars and stones of the temple are found in the nearby pond and the approach is surrounded by constructions and encroachments. Adjacent and north of the temple is the temple pond which is also in a totally neglected condition. There is a small gate from inside the temple which leads here. The entry to the temple is from the west through a small gateway.

Sacred Tree (Sthala Vriksham) – No information


Thiruvanneeswarar Thirumudivakkam is an ancient temple which has been totally lost over time. A stone inscription was found here which is being used as a slab to light lamps and kept in the northern side of the Prakaram.


Thiruvanneeswarar Thirumudivakkam got its name possibly because it is behind the head of the deity of Renganathar in the nearby Thiruneermalai temple. We were also told that this place used to be waterlogged mostly in ancient times.


Thiruvanneeswarar Thirumudivakkam is about 8 kilometers west of Pallavaram and about 1 kilometer from the famous 108 Divya Desam Temple of Thiruneermalai.
