Lagulisa, Ganesha, Kaali
Shiva Arittapatti is a remote temple in a village caled Arittapatti. if you are going from Madurai take a left at Narasingapatti on the Chennai highway before Melur and drive past the TVS factory for about 4 kilometers to reach Arittapatti village. Park your vehicle here and ask for the way as the name board is not visible. From the village you will have to walk for half a kilometer to reach Shiva Arittapatti which is behind a rocky hillock. If you are going from Chennai towards Madurai take a right at Melur onto the Alagarkovil road and drive on for about 5 kilometers and take a left towards south to reach Arittapatti Village. The Sri Lankan who serves at this temple is a simple lone person and it will be nice if you can take something nice for him to eat! There is also an ancient Jain site a little away from the village.
