About Temple:Vedapuriswarar Temple is a sacred place on the northern banks of the Cheyyar River in the Thiruvannamalai District near Kanchipuram in the state of Tamilnadu. This sacred place is now known as Cheyyar but was previously called Thiruvothur. This is one of the important towns in Thiruvannamalai district. It includes a sub-collector office, taluk office, two courts and a special prison. It gets its name from the Cheyyar River. The temple is situated on the banks of the river. This is the 8th of the 32 Devara Stalams in the Thondaimandalam region of South India.

It has the legend that Thirugnana Sambandar, one of the four great Saivite saint visited the temple and changed a male palm tree to flower by singing verses in Tamil.
This Temple is formerly known as Vedanadeshwarar temple. The Ancient name for Cheyyar River is Seiyaru with the meaning of the river created for a child to play. There is also an ancient temple - Pattchieeswarar temple and another ancient Temple – Pathala Vinayagar Temple.
Although this temple had been founded earlier, inscriptions primarily from the middle and later Chola periods (11th -13th centuries) indicate expansion of temple during Chola time. Arunagirinathar, a devotee of Lord Muruga worshiped and wrote Tamil song on the God of this temple.
This temple has a few unique distinctions. The Nandi, which usually faces the Shiva Lingam, is facing the opposite direction. The great Speciality of the temple is that one will be able to have the Dharsan of the Lord, Goddess, Lord Muruga, Lord Ganapathy and the Palm tree standing in a single place which is not possible in other temples.
There are separate sannidhis for the Pancha Bhoota Sthalams of Shiva like Chidambaram, Thiruvanaikkal, Kanchipuram, Kaalahasthi and Thiruvannamalai, so we get the benefit of praying at all these places here itself.
