Virinjipuram Temple, which is popularly known as Sri Margabandeeswarar Temple, is located about 14 kilometres away from Vellore City, in Virinjipuram Village. Situated in the state of Tamil Nadu on the southern bank of Palar River, the temple owes the beautiful artistic stonework on its walls and its palatial Dravidian architecture to the rulers of Chola Dynasty.
The Mulavar or the primary deity of the temple is Lord Shiva in the form of a lingam. Although pilgrims from all over India visit Virinjipuram Temple throughout the year, during the three ten-days celebrations of Theerthavari, Shivratri and Navarathri, the vitality of the Temple is at its utmost and the festivities are a sight to behold. The temple also houses other deities who are worshipped by the devotees including Maragadambhikai, Ganapathy and Lord Brahma, also known as Virinjan, in the form of a child.
