Gangadeeswarar Somanatheeswarar Paleeswarar

   This is another popular temple of Lord Siva in the Town. The main deity here is called Lord Somanatheeswarar accompanied by Rathinavalli Ambal. This temple, however, does not come under the authority of the Hindu Religious and Endowment board. It is a community temple governed by the Senguntha Mudhaliars of the village. The temple is managed by a family of hereditary trustees and the present trustee is Dr K Natarajan MD.

   Over the years and due to depleted financial resources, the temple was in a dilapidated condition and with the concerted efforts of the trio consisting of the retired Head Master Mr K Devarajan, the popular astrologer Mr K Ramachandra Mudhaliar and the philanthropist Mr Kalathi V Subramaniam, the temple has been renovated very nicely and the Kumbabishekam was done a in a grand manner in 2008. After the renovation and Kumbabishekam of the temple, the ten days' temple celebration which was conducted every year during the tamil month of Maasi previously, has also been started from 2009 onwards. This ten days' celebration is conducted by ten groups of families belonging to the Sengunthar community
