The temple is of 7th century temple under ASI dedicated to lord shiva worshipped as dhenupureswarar and goddess Parvathi as dhenukambal located in madampakkam. It's be lived lord shiva gave moshav to a cow who is actually sage kapilar reborn as cow, here and so he is worshipped as dhenupureswarar. Th the temple is so famous among the locals for the Sunday raghu kala pujai to sarabheswarar here.

Ancient temple temple with a tank..taken over by Archaeological Survey of India..different versions of history for temple can be seen..Shiva is actually a “Swayabu” self-made and only during Abishekam time one can see the Lingam out of its silver cover..rare. So are the sculptures in 18 pillar front mandap that depicts all forms of both Shiva and Vishnu, along with their consorts. One needs minimum 3 hours of peaceful time to study and enjoy the sculptures. The temple lacks a Rajagopuram and no one has the right answer to why it remains like that..a 7th century puzzle..!

I recently visited this temple with friends.It is located in Madambakam few kilometers from velachery.The temple is one of the very old temples of lord Shiva. The temple is well maintained and we have anna dhanam counter which occurs frequently.The temple is usually crowded and one can get tasty prasadams inside the temple.

An ancient temple believed to be built in10th century by Chola kings is a marvelous identity of Indian architecture. The temple looks a little different without a usual Kupuram at the entrance. Must visit for architecture lovers!!!

A 800 year old temple frequented by locals, the temple hold its charm for the sincerity exuded by its devotees. Do visit on Sunday evening by 4.30 PM to participate in the Sarabeswarar Rahu kala puja quite popular in this temple.

The temple (approx 900 yrs old) is surrounded by houses and from the main road it doesnt seem that such a big temple can be there.

You can purchase a lamp to be lit inside the premises of the temple (not inside the main shrine). The preist are very cordial and pay attention to the peoples need who come for darshan. As said by many Sunday evenings are crowed owing to the puja however other days see normal visitors'.

Navgarh (Nine Planets) temple is also there. Temple offerings (Prasad) is tasty.

Though it is an ASI site but maintenance is extremely low and very few people are aware about it.
