Do not miss to offer prayers at the centuries-old Soundararaja Perumal Temple located off the Dindigul – Salem highway, in the Dindigul - Karoor route. The temple has much architectural value and has a magnificent five-tiered Rajagopuram. It is believed to have strong connections with Lord Kallazhagar of Madurai.

The beautiful village of Thadikombu in Dingidul is where the centuries-old Soundararajaperumal Temple is situated. The temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu or Lord Alagar is an example of Dravidian architecture, built in 16th  century AD, during the rule of Achyuta Deva Raya. While Lord Vishnu is worshipped as Soundararaja Perumal, in a sleeping position, Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped as Kalyani Soundaravalli Thayaar. The temple has musical pillars in its Kalyana Mandapa, similar to those found in Azhwar Tirunagari, Meenakshi Amman and Kasi Viswanathar temples. You can find beautiful architectural forms of Vishnu on the Ranga Mandapam or Anna Mandapam. Though a Vaishnavite temple, the temple complex has a vilva tree, considered sacred to Lord Siva.

Among the three yearly festivals observed in the temple, the festival that falls during the Chittirai month (March – April), known as the chariot festival, holds a prominent place. There is also the Adi – Poornima festival  in July – August. 

There are also shrines for Lord Dhanvanthari, Hayagriva and Mother Saraswathi. People come here to offer prayers in order to excel in education and increase their memory. People who offer votive prayers in the Azahagar temple perform the same in the Soundararaja Perumal temple. The temple timings are from 6 am to 12 noon, and from 4 pm to 8 pm. 

The temple is situated 18 kilometres from Dindigul town.

Devotees perform annadhan (for a minimum of 100 devotees daily) and conduct weddings here. People also offer prayers in the temple to remove wedding obstacles. 

The temple complex has parking facilities.
