Welcome to the Kanjanur Shiva temple!

Lord Shiva and Parvathi at Kanjanur are worshipped as Lord Agneeswara and Karpaga Valli Amman. This vortex is the sixth significant temple among the Navgrahas. Lord Shukra - Venus rules your luck factor, prosperity, abundance, riches and assets. It is a belief that Lord Shiva himself incarnated as Venus at Kanjanur. A special feature of the lingam here is that it absorbs all the oil poured over it during the abhishekam. Also, Shakthi is seen towards right side of Shiva. In most temples, it is the vice-versa.

The temple has two sanctums with a five-tier temple tower in the entrance. River Kaveri flows from the south to north at Kanjanur and faces the temple tower. This is why, the temple tower here faces the south direction, as well. The temple and the river Kaveri face each other. This is a highlight at Kanjanur.

There is a separate shrine in this temple where lord Venus waits for his devotees to perform rituals to him and to fix their birth charts for a weekly placed Venus. He is the son of sage Bruhu and so called upon as Bhargavan, the name by itself means that he is open to the requests of his devotees. He is the yogakaraka or the fortune giver. The good effects showered to you from the other planets in the navgraha is intensified by the one and only fortune giver Venus.
