Maragadachaleswarar Temple, Thiruengoimalai, Trichy
Maragadachaleswarar Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva located at Thiruengoimalai in Trichy District of Tamilnadu. Presiding Deity is called as Maragathachalar / Maragadachaleswarar / Trinajyotheeswarar / Eengoinathar / Malaikozhnthar / Achutheeswarar / Brahmeswarar / Indreekarar / Threethar. Mother is called as Maragathavalli / Maragadambikai. The hillock is otherwise called Maragathamalai / Thenkailayam / Sivasakthimalai / Malaikovil / Erattimalai. The river Cauvery passes nearby the hillock. The river 'Surpanathi' passes adjoining the hillock. The river is otherwise called Kondayurumarai or Kondamarai.

It is one of the shrines of the 275 Paadal Petra Sthalams - Shiva Sthalams glorified in the early medieval Thevaram poems by Tamil Saivite Nayanar Tirugnanasambandar. This temple is the 117th Devaram Padal Petra Shiva Sthalam and 63rd Sthalam on the north side of river Cauvery of Chozha Naadu. Poet Nakkeerar has sung a booklet named Eengoi-Ezhupathu (70 Eengoi songs). It is considered very auspicious to visit three Shivasthalams (Kadambar Kovil in the morning, Thiruvatpokki (Ratnagiri) at noon and Thiruengoimalai in the evening) on Mondays during the Tamil month of Karthigai.
