The Lord Marundeeswarar Temple houses an ancient all-powerful in swayambhu Shiva linga. This temple is situated in Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai. It is one of the 275 holiest shrines of Shiva devotees in South India. Shaivite saints Appar and Tirugnana Sambandar have written poems in the seventh and eighth century that glorify the lingam.
There are 108 other lingams at the temple and also other five lingams that represent the five elements.
The celestial cow Kamadhenu is believed to wash the lingam with her milk everyday, which is why the Lingam is said have acquired a white color.
Where there is Shiva, Maa Jagadambika is also present. The Goddess is present in the temple as Thirupurasundari and other forms.
May Lord Marundeeshwar Mahadev bless us with the desire for service to his lotus feet!
