The siva temple is dedicated to Sri Dharabaranyeswara. King Nala attained emancipation here from the hardships and miseries to which Sani subjected him. Enshrined within the temple is Saniswara, the presiding deity. The devout believe that they can get rid of their curses and spells of bad luck if they pray in this temple. Pilgrims take a dip in the Nala Theertha and offer worship at the temple. The worship here includes lighting holy lamps with til (gingelly) seeds and oil. After prayers, balls of cooked rice are offered to the Crow, the mount of Saniswara. The festival Sani Peyarchi, which occurs once in two and a half years, attracts thousands of pilgrims. On this day, Saturn moves from one Rasi to another. The temple is located in Thirunallar, near Karaikal, in Tamil Nadu.
