Sukreeswarar Temple - Tirupur

Sukreeswarar Temple

The 10th century built sukreeswarar temple situated at S. Periyapalayam in the outskirts of Tirupur city is remaining unknown to many a pilgrim tourists.

The premise of this elegantly constructed shrine, which was built by Pandya rulers, wears a deserted look on almost every day except during the occasional visits of a handful of people from the vicinity. Department of Tourism and the Archeological Survey of India should exploit the tourism potential of the site and make it an 'preferred' pilgrimage destination, at the earliest.

The temple, which is considered one of the four 'Sirpa Sthalangal' in Kongu region, will also find a mention in the proposed web site of Tirupur District.
With 'Kurakuthali Nayanar' (Lord shiva) as the main diety, the shrine is an architectural delight made of neatly carved long stones reminiscing the epoch of Pandya period. The shivalingam here dates back to 5th century. This weekend visit this wonderful architecture with family and children.
