Anumeeswarar Temple (Agastheeshwarar Temple), Porpandal, Uthiramerur, Kanchipuram
Anumeeswarar Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva located in Porpandal at Uthiramerur Taluk of Kanchipuram District. This Temple is also called as Agastheeshwarar Temple. Presiding deity is called as Anumeeswarar and Agastheeshwarar and Mother is called as Amirthavalli and Thripura Sundari. Sthala Vriksham is Vilva Tree.

It is located approximately 18 Kms from Chengalpet. In this temple, one can find two Sivalingams, two ambals and two nandheeswarars. Other Sannathis are Vinayagar, Murugan and Vishnu. This sacred temple was worshipped by Lord Anjaneya. As in Chidambaram, special Abishegams are being performed six times in a year to Lord Nataraja of this temple.

Nearly 50 years ago, as the Vinayaga statue of this temple got damaged, local people gathered and removed and threw it into the local pond. In its place, they installed a new Vinayaga statue also. On that very night, Lord Vinayaga appeared in their dreams and questioned if anyone in your house becomes a handicap, will you throw him into a pond. Everyone got scared and next morning, recovered the old statue from the pond. They constructed a small temple near the pond itself and installed the old statue there. Till date, regular poojas are being performed to that deity.
