The temple is devoted to Lord Vedapuresswarar who came here and imparted his spiritual knowledge regarding the Vedas.

This is the 8th of the 32 Devara Stalams in the Thondaimandalam region of South India. Although this temple was an earlier foundation, inscriptions here are primarily from the middle and later Chola periods (11th -13th centuries). Arunagirinathar, a devotee of Lord Muruga worshipped the God in this temple. It is a temple which has a few unique distinctions. The Nandi, which usually faces the Shiva lingam, is facing the opposite direction. Also, one can worship all the Pancha Bootha (lingams) in this temple. The devotees of the temple and the natives of the town celebrate a festival every year with street processions which spans 10 days called Brahmmotsavam. Of these 10 days the 6th, 7th and 10th day of the festival are celebrated in a grand manner. The 4th day function is celebrated on a grand scale every year by the Adidravidar community. The 6th day function is celebrated on a grand scale every year by the Brahmin Community Trust and the 10th day function is celebrated by Agamudaiyar (Thuluva Vellar) community trust. Devotees across the world patronize the trusts for 7th and 10th day functions. Most of the people in the town belong to Sengunthar Muthaliyar caste.

Cheyyaru started industrialization following the establishment of the industrial complex by the State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu (SIPCOT).[2] Since the investment hot-spots such as Sriperumbudur and Oragadam have become overcrowded, Cheyyaru has become an alternative choice. This is evidenced by the recent announcements of a 250-acre (1.0 km2) hi-tech Special Economic Zone for automative components, a 300-acre (1.2 km2) electronics hardware park and the commitment from the Taiwanese Shoe Company to set up its unit.[3] One of the largest sugar mills in the country - Cheyyar co-operative sugars - is situated near the town. On Nov, 2009 Tamil Nadu cabinet approved the Mahindara & Mahindra's Rs 1800 core automobile project in 450 acres. This unit will produce tractors, SUVs and commercial vehicles and auto parts.[4] Aluminum die cast unit by Ashley Alteams, a joint venture by Ashok Leyland and Finland-based Alteams Oy started its production on Jan, 2010.[5] This High pressure die cast will manufacture automobile and telecommunication components with initial capacity of 7000 ton per year.[6]

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
