SRI DHARMARAJA TEMPLE ( SRI THROWPATHI AMMAN ) - EAST SAIDAPET – THE ADYAR- a cultural Mapping

06th November 2016.
When I searched google map for the temples is East Saidapet area along the banks of river Adyar, I came across this Dharmaraja temple. Until  I had seen the temple I could not come to a conclusion, who is the deity. Yes the presiding deity is Throwpathy Amman  and sudhai sirpams of Pancha Pandavars with Panchali are in the mandapam connected to the epic Mahabharatham.  Eventhough Thowpathy Amman is the main deity the temple and the street are called in the name of Dharmar.

It was claimed that the temple is more than 300-400 years old.  Annual festival of uriadi is conducted in a grand manner. The Arutjothi Vinayagar Sannadhi at the entrance was added in the latter period.

TEMPLE TIMINGS
There is no fixed time for the temple pooja and an old lady takes care of the temple.

HOW TO REACH:
About a KM from Saidapet bus terminus and the temple is on the Dharmaraja Koil Street.
