Architecture of Agniswarar Temple
Agniswarar Temple, recounting the architectural magnificence of the primordial period, is said to have been constructed by the Medieval Cholas. Later the monarchs of the Vijayanagar Empire took up the initiative of the repair and renovation of the temple.
Adorned with 5 tier rajagopuram, the pilgrimage centre is enclosed by two prakarams i.e. the closed precincts of a shrine. Agniswarar Temple finds its mention in the verses of Appar and hence referred to as Padal petra stalam. The temple enshrines a Shivalingam installed on a circular yonipitha. Agniswarar, the central deity of the temple, depicted in the form of a lingam representing Lord Sukra stands contrast to the other Navagraha temple.
