Anantheeswarar Temple is dedicated to Hindu God Shiva located in Meyyur Village in Tirukalukundram Taluk of Kanchipuram District of Tamilnadu. It is a beautiful and ancient Shiva temple under dilapidated condition and had been renovated recently.

Sri Patanjali Maharishi intends to set up Bana Linga in Chidambaram temple, so he took Bana Linga from Kashi and was travelling towards Chidambaram Temple. While on the way he stayed at the southern bank of Palar River to take rest. During that time Adiseshan and other Snakes worshipped the Bana Linga and requested Patanjali Maharishi to consecrate the Lingam in this place. Adisesan also requested sage to name Lingam as Anantheeswarar as Anandhan was the name of the sage in his previous birth.
