The 45 year long uncompleted Main tower (Rajakopuram) of Chennai Thiruvanmyuir MarutheswararTemple was completed and was went into consecration ceremony today early. This temple has a history of more than 1,300 years and the inscriptions from the temple said to know some south Indian kings like First Rajeanthiran, Rajathee Rajan, Rajeanthira Shozath Theavan First Shozan where been taken to many services and to construct and maintain the temple in 11th century. Marutheswarar Temple was been get to singed by saints of Niyanasambanthar, Thirunavukkarasar and the Sage Valmiki who wrote The Ramayana get salvation from the divine in this temple so it get the name Thiruvanmiyur after a long period of time which was called as Thiruvalmikiyur. And in honoring him there was a street near to temple named Valmiki Nagar and a temple for him stands alone in centre of the ECR.

For Forty Five year it has been left unsighted by people with just column of seven standing and I to see mendicants stay there the most. It was the wish by people have exists today with the current govt.’s fund to renovate the structure in a crore. Today my parent's went to watch consecration ceremony and got me the pictures; and to know there is 9 days varies ceremonies to be held.
