How I went:

I went from Coimbatore on 18th aug 2015. Took a 12.15 am night train chemmozhi express from coimbatore to Needamangalam reaching there by 6.45 am. There is also a train at 3 am straight to thiruvarur from coimbatore. From Needamangalam I took a bus from very near the station and reached thiruvarur in 40 minutes.

I traveled to Thanjavur by train and then took a bus to tiruvarur.

You can alsotake a train direct from Chennai whose details are given below It will reach thanjavur at 6.15 am.


The temple is very old and many places are delapidated. Please eat the tamarind rice prasadam. It is excellent

Generally the temple is closed from 1 pm to 4 pm . There are two shivas and two consorts. The main temple inside would open at 5 pm. Thiagarajar Siva(right near the moolavar or main shiv ling) will open at 6 pm. I had reached there by afternoon 2 pm. There is a small cafĂ© called SRR Cafe inside the bus stand. This is run by women. It had quite good food. So went to the temple tank on the west side(auto from busstand would cost rs 20. Took bath in it is is one of the largest tanks. Then went inside the outer prakaram of temple and slept for 2 hours. Then had dharshan. One major fact here is that navagrahas are normally found in a square matrix in all temples..Here they are all standing in a straight line here. Rina vimosakar is a special siva here who specifically heals bad health problems and debts etc. You have to light 11 lamps and make 11 rounds with a salt pepper  plate(from shop near for that) and put the salt after that into a box provided for salt. Pray for whatever you want in the 11 rounds. If your wish is fulfilled you can come to temple on any day at 6 am and pay rs.300 at office andperform abhishegam to the lord.

It is a very big temple and there are many shiv lings installed by various rishis here. Shiva here has enacted 56 different dharshans here for his ardent devotees.

There is also a very powerful durga inside the temple. Just before  coming out of east tower if you see to your right there will be a tower in south through which you can visit RAJA DURGA temple very near. it is powerful and is a place to appease rahu.
