Suryanaar Temple “Tamil Nadu”

Suryanaar Koyil is settled in the community of Tirumangalakkudi left Kumbhakonam and Mayiladuturai neighboring Thanjavur in Tamilnadu. This is a one of a gracious temple dedicated to the Sun God and it also houses shrines to each of the added eighter heavenly bodies - the Nava Grahams. Real closeby, are the Shivastalams Tirumangalakkudi and Kanjanur

Shrines for Surya are seen in numerous temples in Tamilnadu such as Tirukkodikka, Alagadriputtur, Ennayiram, (Rajendra Chola), Tirumanikkuzhi (Kulottunga), Tirupparaitturai, Tiruppattur, Kovilur etc. ; still a standalone tabernacle for Surya is many of an elision than a harness.

Suryanaar Koyil was collective by the Chola kings. Inscriptions from the point of Kulottunga Chola I (1075-1120) touch to this temple as the Kulottunga Chola Martanda Alayam. Kulottunga Chola is said to make had a fortunate relation with the Gahadwal royalty of Kanauj (1090 - 1194), whose rulers were Sun worshippers, and hence Suryanar Koyil, is reasoned to be an manifestation of their impact in Southland Bharat.

Inscriptions from the phase of Krishna Deva Raya, speech of endowments prefabricated to this tabernacle are also seen here.

Ratha Saptami in the Tamil month of Tai, and the premier Sundays in the months of Aavani (Leo) and Kartikai (Somebody) and Vijaya Dasami are historied in this temple.
