Sri Mayuranathar Temple, Pethavanallur, Rajapalayam 

The structure of the temple is such that the devotee feels a welcome and blessings of Vinayaka, Muruga, Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva, Mothers Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswathi, The Native Vinayaka (Sthala Vinayaka) graces from the Kannimoola direction. After worshipping Shri Nandi Deva (bull vehicle of Lord Shiva), when we proceed to worship Shri Mayuranatha, He graces darshan in his royal dress showing His supremacy over the universe. Though the devotee may have in mind his demands from the Lord, after the darshan of the Lord, he/she only comes out with a contended mind forgetting his material needs and only understands that the purpose of life has been attained. The devotees’ satisfaction goes further up, when they have the darshan of Mother Anjal Nayaki who is beauty personified. In between the Lord and mother is the shrine of Somaskanda. We proceed further to worship the Navagrahas then. After the worship at the Kodimaram (flag post)
