Nootreteeswarar Temple, Chinnakavanam, Thiruvallur
Nootreteeswarar Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva located at Chinnakavanam Village near Ponneri in Thiruvallur District of Tamilnadu. This is a very ancient temple with an interesting story and sthalavruksham which adds antiquity to this temple. The temple itself is very small and neat but the legends and the Angola tree (Eru Azhinjal in Tamil) add to the sanctity of the temple. This is the birth place of Ramalinga Adigalar’s mother.

Prayers
The Angola Ganapathy grants the wishes for his devotees. After the wish is fulfilled, it is a custom here to offer Vada malai (54 to 108) to him. Normally Vada malai will be offered only to Anjaneyar and possibly this is the only place where Vada malai is being offered to Vinayaka. People, who want to get married, worship the Goddess on a full moon day with a rose garland for continuous 3 full moon days to get their wishes sanctioned.
