Arulmigu Ammayappa Eswarar Sannadhi

It is located 1 km west of Sri Renugambal Temple. This is a 12th century temple and is the oldest of the lot. Due to sand storms this temple was buried completely and was excavated later and is in good shape now. This was the family deity of Sambuvarayar kings. The amman in this temple is Aparnambigai and the deity is around 5.5 feet high. Right in front of the Amman shrine, there is a place underground from where they discovered the ancient [urchava] idols and ornaments. The place has been properly earmarked with a writing ‘Not a Hundi’ for obvious reason. The excavated urchava idols can be seen in the urchava mandapam.
