Thingaloor is one of the Saivite holy places in Tamil Nadu. Thingal means Moon. At this temple only the southern entrance is used. On the left of the temple Lord Kailashnath and in the opposite side Goddess Periyanayaki. Around the outer corridor we can have darisanam of Lord Dhakshinamoorty and in the eastern side is Chandra Baghawan.


Moon is one of the benevolent planets among the nine planets. Lord Shiva has three eyes and Moon is considered the left eye of the Lord. Moon is known for her soft nature and is an integral part of Goddess Parasakhi. Monday is the main day of prayer for her. The adverse effect of Moon manifests them in loss of mental peace. Ill health, possibility loss of life in water, fear etc. By worshiping Moon we can get relief from these adverse effects.

Thingaloor, Though there is a question about when this temple was built, historians agree that it must have been in existence since before the beginning of the Bhakti period, which was well before the seventh century A.D. Dedicated to the Moon or Chandran in Sanskrit and Thingai in Tamil, a visit to this temple is said to grant a confortable and long lilfe. In astrology, Chandran is the planet that removes stress and sorrow. Chandra or Moon is a lovable God - Pleasing to the children as well as elders, universally appealing to everyone whatever may be the religion. Goddess Parvathi rules the planet.
