This temple is one among the Navagraha temples around KUMBAKONAM.
This temple is significant for the planet "Budhan".
A separate sannithi is there for Budhan planet..

This is the temple for Lord Shiva as the main deity. Lord Budhan is located in the outer premise of this huge temple complex. You can also see the Shiva Padam in this temple complex. You have Natraja Temple in this temple complex where the Temple Roof resembles the Chidambaram Temple.

A must visit temple for pilgrims on Navagraha tour.

This is another ancient Shiva Temple in this region. Lord Shiva did his first dance in the form of Nataraja in this temple and it is known as Adi Chidambaram. The temple has three ponds, three sacred trees and three forms of lord shiva and famous for Pithru Tharpana.

We covered this temple as part of our trip to cover all Navagraha temples from Kumbakonam. This happens to be the fourth temple (after Suriyanarkoil, Kanjanur and Vaitheeswarankoil) out of the 9 lot, to reach from Kumbakonam, which lies at a distance of around 60 kms from Kumbakonam.

Lord Shiva resides here in the form of lingam with the name of Swetharanyeswarar and Lord Budhan (Mercury) is worshipped along with Goddess Vidya Ambal. One can offer prayers to them for good knowledge, academics, nervous disorders etc. Devotees can offer green cloth and green moong dal to God. One has to proceed towards outside the Shiva temple and in the right lies the Budhan temple opposite the Temple Tank. The ancient temple is covered with artistic sculptures.

Avoid the shops which invite you to leave footwear at their shop to induce you into buying puja items from them. You can safely leave your footwear outside the temple.

Car parking space is available at Rs. 20 and is convenient

Thiruvenkadu (Adhi Chidambaram) is in Nagapattinam district of Tamil Nadu. It is one of the nine Navagraha temples in South India. The presiding deity here is Lord Shiva, famous as Venkaatunadar and Sri Swetaranyeswarar.
Here’s the significance of Thiruvenkadu Temple:
Lord Shiva possesses three eyes – Chandra, Surya and Agni. Since the eyes bless the tanks, the Theertham(tanks) are also famous as Soma Theertham ,Surya Theertham and Agni Theeertham. Bathing in these tanks and worshipping the Lord here for one “mandalam” (45 days) is also relieves couples from problems in relation with childbirth.
One of the three deities is Aghoramurthy or Aghora Veerabhadramurthy the most fierce among the five representations of Lord Shiva. There are also several shrines of significance including those to Ma Durga and Ma Kali. The saints Appar,Sundarar,Sambandhar and Manikavasagar have sung in praise of this temple.
Further, those who visit Thiruvengadu will find relief from puthira dosham, poor studies, mental instability, nervous disorders. Knowledge, music, astrology, maths, sculpting, medicine, language skills are the beneficial aspects of Budan.

Saint Meikkandaar, the first of the four “Santhana Kuravars” and the author of “Shivagnanabodham” is believed to have been born by the grace of Sri Swetharanyeswarar of this temple. Meikkandaar’s birth name was Swethavanaperumal. There is a shrine for the saint on the banks of the Agni Theertham here.
