The Sri Pandurangan Temple is located in Thennangur and is dedicated to God Panduranga. The structure of the temple is similar to that of the Pandaripuram temple in Maharashtra where God Panduranga and Mother Raghumayee bless devotees. The temple was built by His Holiness Haridasgiri Swamigal. It is currently being administered by His Holiness Namanandagiri Swamigal. In this temple all the deities related to Sri Chakra are present. The temple follows the Nama Sangeerthana principles. This temple resembles the design of Puri Jagannath with a 120-feet tall tower and Gold Kalasas of 9.5 feet with Sudarsana Chakra above. There is the 16-pillared Maha Mandap. Garuda is occupying the centre space. God Govindaraja Perumal graces the Wedding festival in the mandap as in Tirupathi. The temple follows both the sampradaya of South and the Bajan Sampradaya of the North. According to Hindu mythology, the Hindu goddess Meenakshi was found as a three year old child by the Pandya king here.
