Varamoortheeswarar Athur is an ancient temple. The Mantapa, its pillars and the sanctums indicate its antiquity. Historical information is not available as on date.
Varamoortheeswarar Athur is about 4.5 kilometers west of the Chennai – Kolkata National Highway. The road to Varamoortheeswarar Athur takes off just before the Tirupati road and a little after Karanodai. Refer to our map below to reach the temple. The road for some distance is difficult to drive in patches. We took the road from Thirukandalam and it is not advisable as terrain was rough and no road in some areas including the crossing of the Kushasthalai River bed.
