Special about Chidambaram temple:

The bejeweled figure of Nataraja is a distinctive element of this temple. It symbolizes Lord Shiva as the Lord of Bharatanatyam dance and is one of the rare temples where Shiva is depicted by an anthropomorphic murthi rather than the traditional anionic Lingam. Lord Nataraja’s Cosmic Dance represents the mobility of the cosmos as supported by Lord Shiva. There are five courtyards in the temple. Around 1213 AD, Aragalur Udaya Iraratevan Ponparappinan (alias Vanakovaraiyan) erected the Chidambaram Siva temple. The Tiruvannamalai temple was also erected by the same Bana Chief. The temple has always been governed by Dikshitar, an endogamous clan of Shaivite brahmins who also serve as its priest.
