    There are close to 108 Theertham situated in and around the sacred Tiruchengode sanctuary in the south. But, at present, only a select few are accessible to the public. Some of the notable few are:
    Ganapathy theertham Dheiva theertham Kumaara theertham Shiva Theertham
    Shakthi Theertham Paavanasa Theertham Bhairava Theertham Naaga Theertham

    Among the ones mentioned above, Deiva Theertham is said to be very special. This particular holy water is present below the feet of the idol of Arthanaareeswarar. The common people are not granted access to this holy water. It is specially utilised for the worship and Archana of Lord Arthanaareeswarar. Another speciality of this Theertham is that it never gets dried up.
