Overview

Moovar Koil or "The Three temples" is a Hindu temple complex situated in the village of Kodumbalur in Tamil Nadu. Sadly, of the trio, only two of the three temples have managed to survive. These temples were constructed by the Chola feudatory and Irukkuvel chieftain Boothi Vikramakesari and according to the chief's inscription, he built three temples in the complex one for himself and the other two for his wives, namely, Nangai Varaguna Perumanar and Karrali.

The place was ruled by Irukkuvel chieftains and Kodumbalur was also the site of a fierce battle between the Pandyas and the Pallavas. Only the basement survives the northern shrine. The basement is moulded like a full blown lotus flower(padma pushkala adisthanas). The other two shrines, namely the central and southern are more or less intact. Each central shrine is 6.4sqmetres at the base and they all face west.

The walls are rich in details and there is a small shrine for Nandi in front of the Maha mandapa. Today the temple complex is maintained and administered by the Archaeological Survey of India as a ticketed monument
