Description: This temple is dedicated to "Him who cures fevers" and is a later development of the preceding temple (Pandavaperumal). It has a circular cella and a rather low vimana of the same shape, its dome being oval. The dome is surmounted by three kalasas. It may date from around 1200. The decoration of some of the pilasters is peculiar to Chola art, specially the kumbha pancharam which has a vase as its base. Two instances can be seen here. In front of the cella, and adjoining it, is a mandapa.
