The Nandeeswarar Temple is located in Tiruchirapalli and is dedicated to God Nandeeswarar. This is a unique temple dedicated to Nandi. The presiding deity God Nandeeswarar in the temple is 7 feet tall, 10 feet long covering a circumference of 16 feet. A 40 feet tall flag post made of stone ageing 300 years can be seen behind God Nandeeswarar. There is a Nandhi on the top of the flag post (Kodimaram) as well. Pooja is performed to both God Nandeeswarar and the Kodimaram. The other sannidhi's are that of God Sevvandhi Vinayaka which is below the Kodimaram and that of Sri Veera Anjaneya. This temple is part of the Sri Thayumanaswami Temple, built during the Chola period. As the pathway to the temple was blocked in later, Nandi was isolated from the main temple and thus became an independent temple in itself.
