Tirukkazukundram (17 kms) - A small Shiva temple is situated on top of the Vedagiri hills, 160 metres high. There is also a larger Shiva Temple in the town below. At the south east end of the town is a spacious tank whose waters are said to have curative powers. Once every 12 years, it is believed that a conch is "discovered" in this tank and thousands of devotes throng to bathe in the tank at this auspicious time. A collection of the conches is displayed in the larger Shiva Temple.
