Rudhra Koteeswarar Temple, Konerikuppam, Kanchipuram
Rudhra Koteeswarar Temple is dedicated to Hindu God Shiva located at a distance of 6 Kms from Kanchipuram situated in Konerikuppam Village of Kanchipuram District. Presiding deity is called as Rudhra Koteeswarar. Ambal Sannathi is absent in this temple. Separate Sivalingams worshipped by Arjuna and Indira are present in this temple. It is believed that Rudhra Devadas perform daily poojas here.


Local people say that every evening a big snake places itself around the main deity, Lord Rudhra Koteeswarar and perform pooja. Also, there is a popular belief that Lord Siva himself goes around the temple praharam every day and does meditation here. Some villagers have even had a glimpse of a saint doing dhyana. This temple is of great historical importance. But, at present, it is in a very ruined condition.  Daily poojas are not being conducted here. Those who are interested in doing something for the development of this temple,   may contact Mr Prasanna)
