How to reach This paadal petra sthalam is located 7 Kms from Koradacheri and about 5 Kms. from Kudavasal. On the road from Kudavasal to Koradacheri, there is a village called Sellur. A branch road from Sellur leads you to this sivasthalam. (1 Km. from Sellur)

The five temples which collectively make the Pancha Aranya Sthalams are Thirukkarugavur, Alangudi, Avalivanallur, Haridwaramangalam and Thirukollambudhoor. Thirukollambudhoor is the fith among this group of temples. This temple is to be visited in the night between 8 PM and 8-30 PM.

The temple is quite well maintained, and has been recently renovated. As in most of the less visited temples, the priest leaves after completing his regular pujas. Hence it is advisable to get in tourch with the Sivachariar of the temple before hand by callin him over phone. The most interesting thing about this temple was the presence of 3 life-size statues facing the deity, just outside the sanctum. These three statues represent the Chettiar (merchant) who paid for the temple to be built, and his wife and younger brother.
