Speciality of Sri Ponvaithanaathar Temple, Chithaaimur

The Lord of this place appears as a swayambu murthi. Long ago, sage Brahma rishi was dutifully performing the ‘arthajaama pooja’ (midnight worship). Once, the doors of the temple were closed before he arrived. Hence, he took the form of a bee, went through a small hole and worshipped the Lord. The other rishis also likewise worshipped the Lord. Even today, we can see the beehives in the ardha mantapam of the temple. Poojas are performed every day for these beehives.

Opening Timings

The temple is open from 8.00 am to 12 noon and from 5.00 pm to 8.30 pm.
