Stone inscriptions dating back to 1033 CE confirm the long existence of Chandrasekaraswamy New Gummidipundi temple. Snake and fish inscriptions seen here suggest the involvement of ancient Kingdoms in the temple.
Nithya Pradosham is a unique feature here and this should have a legendary connection of the temple.
Take a left just before the Gummidipundi railway station on the Kolkata highway, immediately after the Zion Church and drive for about 4 kilometers past the baleeswarar temple and an anjaneya temple to reach Chandrasekaraswamy New Gummidipundi temple. The location is called New Gummidipundi. There are 2 other temples in the area and may be combined with them. The temples are in bad state and not open always.
