This temple is one of the earliest in the capital, built during the Sangam
rule. The temple is dedicated to Lord Prasanna Virupaksha or Shiva. This ruined
temple is fairly large with a few Mantapas and the pillared cloister. The Sanctum
and other parts of the temple are perennially under water. The temple for Parvathi,
Shivas consort is simple. But the Kalyanamantapa is ornate and was built during
the l5th century.
