After the visiting the Konar temple, on the way to Kanchipuram, we had noticed a dilapidated temple and a new temple close to each other.
Iraivan : Sri Parasurameswarar
Iraivi : Sri PerungKarunainayaki
Some of the important features of this temple are …
The temple is facing west with a simple 3 tier Rajagopuram without any stucco images. The temple is also very simple with Amman and Bairavar sanndhis. In koshtam Vinayagar, Dhakshinamaurthy, Mahavishnu, Brahma and Durgai. The temple is not an old one ( as claimed by Babaji 25 lakhs years old ) and might have constructed in the recent years. Parasuraman, Palipedam and Nandhi are in front. Vinayagar and Murugan are in front of the sannadhi.
As per the legend Sri Parasuramar worshipped Lord Shiva of this temple to get the weapon Parasu. 27 nakshathira trees are grown around the compound wall and the special trees are Thiruvodu maram and Rudhraksha tree. Mandapam construction was in progress during our visit.
Since the temple is little away from the main roads devotees are advised to contact before going to the temple.

Just before this new Sri Parasurameswarar temple there was a dilapidated brick temple might have constructed during Chozha period. A large peepal tree was grown on the Vimana and seems that the structure may collapse at any time. Vegetation were grown in side and out side, which obstructs the entry to the structure. Nandhi is in damaged condition. Shiva Lingam was taken out of the sanctum and kept open to sky.
