2022 Thai Amavasya Puja at Kanjanur Lord Agniswarar Temple
Kanjanur Lord Agniswarar Temple is one Hindu temple in the village of Kanjanur, 18 kilometres north-east of Kumbakonam. The presiding deity is Sukra (Venus). However, the main idol in the temple is that of “Agniswarar” or Shiva. In concordance with the Saivite belief that Shiva is all-pervading, Sukra is believed to be located within the stomach of the idol of Shiva.
Legend is that Siva blessed Parasara muni (sage) here with cosmic dance. It is believed that Shiva appeared in the form of Sukra to propitiate himself free from the dosham of Sukra. The temple is counted as one of the temples built on the northern banks of River Kaveri.
