Gnayiru Pushparatheswarar Temple Pictures
Gnayiru is the birthplace of Sangili Nachiar who lived about 1,300 years ago. Since her story mentions her worship in this temple, this temple is considered to be much older than 1,300 years. The Sun god worshipped the Lord here to get rid of a curse, and hence this place has come to be named after him, the word Gnayiru in Tamil meaning the Sun.
