The idols and carvings at Pasupatheeswarar Marur look old giving the impression of an ancient temple.


From the Lord’s name and the presence of a carving, we assume that Pasupatheeswarar Marur temple should have a mythology based on a cow shedding its milk in a mound under which this Lingam would have been discovered.


Pasupatheeswarar Marur is about 8.5 kilometers on the main road from Thiruvaiyar to Kallanai.
