Agneeswarar Temple, Kanjanur

Agni is said to have worshipped Lord Shiva here and hence the name Agneeswarar. There is no separate sannidhi (shrine) for Lord Sukra as Lord Shiva himself is believed to have incarnated as Lord Sukra (Planet Venus) and hence it is one of the Navagraha Sthalams in Tamil Nadu.
