Nergunapattu Shiva Temple, Kalpakkam, Kanchipuram

The hillock is surrounded by four hills. There is a sunai nearby and the water of that sunai is used for Abhishekam. People from nearby villages throng the temple on auspicious days to perform Girivalam. There is no particular sacred tree for the temple but people here reverentially show a neem tree nearby as the sacred tree. Siddhars believed to exist here.
