Kattankulathur Sri Kalatheeswarar Temple

Kattangulathur is a small village on GST Road (the highway connecting Chennai and Trichy) located near Neyveli (outskirts of Chennai). The village has a small but ancient unknown temple named Kalatheeswarar temple. This temple is considered equivalent to that of Kalahasti temple and the belief is that it can cure problems caused due to snake (sarpa dosham).
The best way to reach this place is either by taxi or on your own vehicle. The other option is local train. The village is at a distance of around 48 km from Chennai. Once you enter into the Kattangulathur village from GST Road, you can reach the temple within 300 meters in a lane.

Kalatheeswar (Lord Shiva) is the main deity of the temple. The goddess is Gnanambikai. There are idols of other Gods and Goddesses such as Ganesha, Subramanya with Valli and Devasena, Bhairav, Vishnu, Durga, Chandikeshwara, Brahma, Dakshinamurthy, and others. The highlight of the temple is it doesn’t have Navagraha (nine planets). Instead, it has two idols of Raghu and Kethu alone (for those who do not know, Raghu and Kethu are two planets among Navagraha).
You should be lucky to find this temple open. The temple remains closed almost for the entire day as hardly anyone visits this temple.
