We continued our visit to another ancient temple under renovation, Sri Ekambareswarar Temple at Vengadu. The temple has the ancient base structure with inscriptions.

In the same route Manimangalam-Makanyam-JKTyres road, turn right at Navalur and the temple is at about 2 kms from there. It can also be reached from the Kundrathur-Sriperumpudhur route. At abput 17 kms from Kundrathur, after TVH Svaya Flats, turn left and the temple is about 2 kms from there.

The (muddy) water from this temple tank is serving as the drinking water for the whole village and the people are in dire need of filtered water from this tank.

  2. I can give few water filters of mine. They have to just pour on the top the pond water, the bottom vessel can give clean drinking water. If anyone goes that side, they can pick up from me at Cenotaph road. Teynampet. My number is 9444441181. See details of the low cost electricity water filters at http://www.terafilwater.in

  3. REACH was the one to declare this temple first out along with Ramamurthi Sir. Now happy that Sathyanarayanan our member is actively renovating the temple. We are lending helping hands by giving skilled sthapathis.

  4. Comment from Vijaya Ramesh:
    Can we pool in money and provide the facility of safe drinking water to the villagers near the Vengadu temple? Please let us know.
