Velleeswarar Temple, Mangadu, Chennai
Velleeswarar Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva located at Mangadu in Chennai City in Tamilnadu. This temple is located very close to Mangadu Kamakshi AmmanTemple. Presiding Deity is called as Velleeswarar / Sukreeswarar / Bargaveeswarar. There is no Goddess in this temple as she is present in the separate temple (as Kamakshi) nearby. This is a mid-size temple spread over 2 acres and is among the 3 principal temples in Mangadu – the other 2 being the SriKamakshi Amman Temple and SriVaikunda Perumal Temple.





It is said that people visiting KamakshiAmman Temple should also have darshan at Velleeswarar Temple and Vaikunda Perumal Temple in Mangadu, as all these three temples are interconnected with the history of Kamakshi Amman. The temple is managed by the HRCE Department of the Government of Tamil Nadu. This temple is Sukran Sthalam among the Navagraha Temples of Chennai (or Thondai Mandalam). Sri Sukran blesses people with wealth, prosperity, good family, vehicles, fame and social status.
