Atchipureeswarar Temple (Thazh Paaleeswarar Temple), Edamachi, Kanchipuram
Atchipureeswarar Temple is dedicated to Hindu God Shiva located in Edamachi Village of Kanchipuram District. This Temple is called as Thazh Paaleeswarar Temple in olden days. Edamachi is a small beautiful village surrounded by a serene, greenish atmosphere. In this village, a very old Vinayagar temple is situated near a small pond. Also, a Siva temple is found nearby.

Some years ago, a very old Sivalingam was found by the villagers in the outskirts of the village paddy fields. Devout people brought it to the village & constructed a small temple and placed that Sivalingam as the main deity of that temple. The temple construction was completed and Kumbabishegam was performed in the year 2005.

The main deity is called as Atchipureeswarar, earlier known as Thazh Paaleeswarar. No Ambal Deity is found here. There are no other deities found in this temple. There is a rare vilva tree, each leaf containing 5 petals, in the backyard of the temple. Villagers say that no one had planted this vilva tree and it grew on its own. Daily pooja is not being done in this temple. Only Pradosha Pooja is being performed.
