If you are going not to do a puja to one of the planets but simply to see and experience this unique temple where all nine planets are featured for worship, first of all know that you don't need a guide. The temple complex is small by South Indian standards and it's easy enough to find your way around to... More

This temple is dedicated to lord Suriyan (Sun) and is one of the navagraha temples. This temple has shires for all other planets as well. Kol vinay theertha Vinayagar is an important deity inside the temple and should be worshiped first before worshiping Lord Suriyan and other planets. Wheat and red flowers are given as offering here.
