Kovur Thirumeyneeswarar Temple
Temple is dedicated to Lord Siva. Kovur temple near Porur where the great Saint Thyagaraja stayed and composed three famous songs for Lord shiva. This temple is popular as Budhan Sthalam.
As per the Legends, Goddess Kamakshi performed a strict penance to marry Lord Siva by standing on Panchagni in Maangaadu. This Panchagni generated enormous heat and affecting living beings on the Earth. Sages and Devas approached Lord Vishnu for the rescue, who in turn requested Goddess Lakshmi to save the people on the Earth. On His request, Lakshmi did penance here for Lord Siva in the form of a cow. Impressed with Lakshmi's prayers, Lord Shiva absorbed the heat and it became cooler. From then this place called by "Kopuri" and later into Kovur.
