Pavunchur Shiva Temple, Mathuranthagam, Kanchipuram
Pavunchur is located about 20 Kms from Mathuranthagam is unique in that the Nandhi here is in laughing posture. The teeth line is obviously showing. Another feature of this Nandhi is having anklets. The lord here, Siva has no abode. Without any perturbation he is standing alone irrespective of rain or hot sunshine. His name is not known.



No presence of his consort is available. One devotee is doing poojas daily. Other than the priest there are no visitors. Pradosham is celebrated in this open temple The temple tank is nearby. To reach here one can travel by bus from Mathuranthagam. Or take a right turn in Koovathur situated in Kalpakkam- Pondicherry ECR.
