Brief of Sri Jambukeswara Temple, Tiruchirappalli

This temple is situated about 2.5 km east of the Sri Ranganathaswamy temple. This is one of the most revered temples to Shiva; it houses five concentric walls, and seven gopurams. The primordial element water is represented by an undying natural spring in the sanctum. There is said to have been a forest of Jambu trees near the Chandrateertha tank (filled with the water of the Kaveri) here and Shiva is said to have appeared under one of the trees as a Shiva Lingam.

Sri Jambukeswara Temple
Legend has it that two devotees of Shiva were born under the influence of a curse as a white elephant and a spider. The elephant worshipped Shiva with flowers and water brought in its trunk (hence the name Tiru Aanaikka).
