  1. Thiru mangalam: Siva temple.

    The place is about kms from Lalgudi to north.

    Main Deity: Samavedeswarar and sri Lokhanayaki amman

    Teertham is Parasurama teertham. Sthala Vruksham is Jack fruit tree.

    Importance: The temple dates back to some 2000yrs. There is lot of things important in the temple. The place is equal to Kasi and gaya. Parasurama worshipped Siva in this place to get rid of his Mathruhathi dosha.

    The place is also known as Parasurama kshetram. Chandikeswarar worshiped Siva here to get rid of pithruhathi dosha and attained moksha. Dakashina moorthy is here with abhya mudra. Subramanya swamy is known as Kalyana Subramaniyar.

    Here a unique thing is we see Valli on peacock, Subramanya and Devayanai standing beside her. Arumugha perumal is with six face and four hands as a chatru samhara moorthy.

    Anaya nayanar one of 63 Nayanmars birth as well as mukthi place. One Linga moortham is here which gave mukthi to nayanar. They say it is growing. We see Anaya nayanar in separate sanctum. Anaya nayanar was good at flute and once when he was reciting with flute and meditating, Siva was very much pleased with the music and he gave mukthi to him at the same place.

    Durga here is vishnu Durgai on Simha vahana. Ravikuruva rishi was a bit upset because there was no river near by. Knowing this Siva made river flow which is called as gaya palguni.
