Prananatheswarar Kshetra in Thirumangalakudi dedicated to Lord Shiva is about 16 km the temple-town of Kumbhakonam in Tamil Nadu. Prananatheswarar temple finds mention in sacred scriptures earlier to 7th CE. The temple enjoyed patronage of Cholas, Pallavas and even Vijayanagar Empire, as per inscriptions found here. The belief here is, one should have darshan of Prananatheswarar before proceeding to Suryanar Temple, one of the important Navagraha temples which is close by.

Two interesting legends about the Kshetra. A minister of Kulottunga Chola named Alaivanar is believed to be responsible for renovation of this temple. When the king learnt that public tax money had been utilized for this purposes, he ordered the beheading of the minister. The minister requested that his body be taken to Thirumanagalakudi after execution. When the minister’s wife learnt about the execution, she rushed to the temple and prayed. As soon as the wagon carrying the body reached the Kshetra, the minister is said to have come back to life. The other legend is about Navagrahas suffering from leprosy got cured in this region.

A feature of this Kshetra is the Kalyanotsavam to Lord Shiva and Parvati, which is performed in the night during the Panguni month.
