Karainagar Sivan Kovil, also known as Eelaththu Chithamparam, is situated in Thinnaipuram, on the North of Karainagar. According to the legend, when Siva devotee Ambalavi Murugar was building the Siva temple, lord Siva came in the dream of his devotee Murugar and guided him to choose the Sivalingam, which was enshrined in the sanctorum of the temple.  The presiding deity is called Lord Sunthareswar. Annually three festivals are celebrated grandly in the temple. The Thiruvembavai festival for 10 days in December and Thiruvathirai festival are two of the very popular festivals.
