Five people (Pancha Pandavas) found this place, hence it is called Aivar-Khanda-Puram. The main sanctum of Dharmeswara temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Inside the temple, lingas are specially dedicated to Nakuleswara, Sahadeswara, Arjuneswara and Kuntigudi. It is said that these Shivalingas were consecrated by Pandavas during their vanavasam (exile). Later during Chola period this temple was built and later renovated. We can find Chola period inscription stone outside the temple premise.
Interesting Fact:

According to the priest, Bhima was angry with his brothers for losing in gambling. Hence, Bheema consecrated linga a few meters away from the Dharmeswara temple.
One may ask, when Pandavas were here, then there should be a Krishna temple also. But there is no mention about this. Wait! there is a temple dedicated to Lord Krishna For more information watch out for our next post :) .
Temple Timings: 8 am - 9:30 am
