Masilamani Nathar Koil

Saivam

 

Overview

Masilamani Nathar Koil is an ancient temple situated in the town of Poompuhar. This temple was built in 1305, by Maravarma Kulasekara Pandiyan. The specialty of this temple is its  ancient architectural design. However, its front portion was damaged due to tidal erosion. In addition, the religious activities in this temple have also been discontinued from a long time.
Situated on the shores of the east coast of India, this is the only temple in a land of churches, colonial buildings and collector bungalows. This is the Masilamani Nathar Temple, a 13th century structure that dates back to the Pandian era. Today, only its ruins stand, ravaged by the vagaries of time and the increasing sea levels. Though, one can still admire the rich South Indian temple architecture on the temple dome and main door. 
This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is situated right in front of the British Collector’s bungalow that is today known as the ‘Bungalow on the Beach’ hotel property.
