Sri Thanthondreeswarar Temple, Aakkoor 

This is a place that enjoys a higher importance than Kasi. Sri Vinayaka behind the temple is praised as Lord Poyya Vinayaka. He came in the disguise of a Brahamin to a king wandering around the place and enquired of his problem. The king replied that he was searching for a location to build a temple. Lord Vinayaka advised the king to stay at the bottom of the tank for some three and half hours (Nazhigai) to get the reply. The king stood confused. Lord Vinayaka said that the place was more holy than Kasi and what was left in Kasi could be recovered from this tank. The king obeyed the advice of the Brahmin and came out with the sanctum sanctorum. He was happy and built this temple.

This is a place considered sacred for performing remedial rituals for removal of any evil and adverse effects faced by the devotees. Devotees perform Parvathi Homa to conclude wedding proposals successfully. Those seeking child boon perform Santhana Gopalakrishna Homa.

For removal of adverse effects on children, people use to offer their kids in adoption to other, and get them back again. Those seeking child boon perform archanas with white lotus flowers.
