Alangudi is the place where Guru is worshiped as Sri Dhakshinamurthy. Lord Shiva as Abath Sahayar and Goddess Parvathi known as Aelavarkuzhali, are the main deities here.

 
 
When one visit Guru they should offer 24 ghee or oil lamps which can be got at the temple and after offering the lamps one should walk 24 times around him. He is the Guru of the Devas, and with Guru's grace, even an illiterate person can become a great scholar. The good effect of Guru came in the form of success in life, prosperity and good events like marriages.
 
     
 

Guru is the prime benevolent planet among Nine Planets. Thursday is the preferred day for worshipping Guru Baghawan. Wearing yellow clothes, giving away yellow clothes as charity, observing fast on Thursdays are the proper way of worshipping Guru, for propitiation and getting relief from adverse effect of Guru, such as illness and financial difficulty. The choicest flower fro Guru is White Jasmine.

 
     
 

Alangudi, is regarded as a Guru Sthalam or Jupiter where Lord Dakshinamurthy is held in great revernce. The Shrine attracts a large number of devotees when Jupiter transits between zodiac signs. Parvathi, the consort of Lord Shiva, is said to have been reborn on the banks of the Amrita Pushkarini within the temple precincts before being reunited with siva. He results in a cure from ailments and helps one to ward off his/her sins and gives strength, valour, longevity, etc. He grants the boon of fatherhood to the childless, good education (Vidya). The speciality here is that Lord Guru is engraved on the wall and is not in the form of separate idol reunited with Shiva.
