Pandurangan Temple, Tennangur

About the temple

Tennangur was earlier known as Dakshin Halasyam. The temple has been beautifully constructed with a mix of different cultures in India. The idols of Panduranga-Ragumayi are mesmerising and one can sit admiring the Lord's beauty for hours together. The fiber glass paintings inside the sanctum are very beautiful and attractive.

Lord Lakshmi Narayana temple and Meenakshi- Sundareswar temple are also located a few meters away. Tennangur is the birth place of Goddess Meenakshi. A specialty of the Meenakshi - Sundareswarar temple is that the Navagrahas are present here with their consorts.
