Sri Iravadeeswarar Temple, Madurai
Built In Year :- 1000-2000 years old.
Festival:- The temple does not have regular archakas – priests as such for conducting daily pujas. Yet devotees coming to the temple do the pujas themselves and execute their prayer commitments. Special pujas on Pradosha days; Aipasi Annabishekam on Poornima day in October-November; Tirukarthikai in November-December and Shivrathri in February-March are performed in the temple.
Temple Speciality:- Lord Shiva in His Linga form is a swayambumurthi facing west. The rays of Sun fall on the Lord on the Pradosha days in Chithirai (April-May) and Aadi ((July-August) as if He performs the puja to Lord directly himself.
