Kandhaswamy Temple, Aanur, Chengalpet, Kanchipuram
Kandhaswamy Temple is an ancient temple dedicated to Hindu God Muruga who is present in the form of Brahmma Sastha when he took control of Lord Brahmma’s responsibilities. This Temple is located in Aanur Village near Chengalpet in Kanchipuram District of Tamilnadu. This Temple has been renovated recently.

Aanur has 3 ancient temples. They are the Asthra Pureeswarar Shiva temple in dilapidated condition; the Vedha Narayana Perumal temple, also in dilapidated condition and the Kandhaswamy temple that was renovated recently. Kootruva Nayanar and Poet Pugazhendi lived here.

Aanur is located at around 13 kms South of Chengalpet. While going from Chennai, we have to go through the Chengalpet town and after passing the Chengalpet court in the outskirts of the town, we have to go straight towards Pon Vilaintha Kalathur and then further go straight beyond P.V.Kalathur for another 4-5 kms to reach Aanoor which is located on the Eastern bank of Palar river.
