The Sri Singeeswarar Temple is located in Mappedu and is dedicated to God Singeeswarar. When the God danced at Tiruvalangadu, one of the five Sabhas related to Shiva Dance, Nandi (also known as Singhi) played the mridangam. Immersed in the music, Nandi played the instrument with his eyes closed. Hence he could not see the dance. He begged the God to dance for him again to enjoy His performance. Pleased with his bhakti the God asked Nandi to come to Meipedu on earth. Nandi came here, worshipped the God where He performed the dance again. As Singhi (Nandi) worshipped in this place, the place is named as Singheeswaram and the God Singheeswarar. Mother is worshipped in the name of Pushpagujambal Poomulainayaki related to fragrant flowers. This temple is important for people belonging to Moola star.
