Nataraja Temple is a famous temple enshrining the Nataraja form (Dancing Posture) of Lord Shiva situated at the heart of the temple town Chidambaram. This ancient temple had undergone many renovations during the reign of Pallava and Chola Kings. It is said that Aragalur Udaya Iraratevan Ponparappinan had refurbished most of the parts and rebuilt some parts on 1213 AD at Chidambaram.

The idol in this temple is unique with adornments as a supreme dancer of Bharathanatya known as Nataraja. The cosmic dance depicted as Nataraja Nrutham represents the motion of the Universe sustained by Lord Shiva. The temple has attractive gopurams, many imposing inscription and carvings and five spacious mandapams (courts).
