Sri Virupaksheeswarar Temple

Sri Virupaksheeswarar Temple Worshipped by Sage Kutsa, this is the oldest temple of Mylapore and is near Karaneeswara temple and Mundakkanni Amman temple. Sivanesan Chettiar, who built this temple, had a daughter called Poompavai and when she died, Thirugnana Sambandhar brought her alive from her burnt bones.
The main deities of Virupakesheeswarar temple are Virupakesheeswarar (Lord Shiva) and Vishalaxi Amman. Virupakesheeswarar means 'one with three eyes'. ‘Viroopam’ means ‘Contradicting the Nature’ and since Shiva’s third eye contradicts the nature, He is called Virupaksheeswarar. The current temple is very small and calm. There is a tank inside this temple and the belief is that a dip on this will cure the people of their diseases.
