Tiruttelicheri Temple is the 50th in the series of Tevara Stalams located south of the river Kaveri and is also known as Koyilpattu or Sameevanam. Legend states that Parvati worshipped Shiva here. The presiding deity is called Mahalingam, Bhrahmalingam, Rajalingam and Bhaskaralingam. The temple is five-tiered Rajagopuram that faces the west. There are shrines here to Subramanya, Lakshmi, Durga, Surya, Saneeswara, Bhairava, Nataraja and others. The processional image of Shiva is in the form of Kiratamurthy as in Tiruvettakkudi nearby. The Sun's rays illuminate the sanctum at sunset for a period of 10 days from the 13th day of the month of Pisces. Bathing in the Suryapuskharini on Sundays is considered sacred and so is offering worship on Mondays.
