Kalinga Nadheeswarar Temple is a Hindu Temple dedicated to Lord Shiva located at Irulancheri Village near Perambakkam in Thiruvallur District of Tamilnadu. Presiding Deity is called as Kalinga Nadheeswarar and Mother is called as Thaayinum Nallal. It is said that this place was called Irungalur and mentioned in Appar’s Thevaram as Iraiyancheri. Hence it is considered as Thevara Vaippu Sthalam. However, this claim has to be studied further. It is a small Temple surrounded by paddy fields. A dilapidated Mutt of Devar Singa Adheenam is seen near the Temple.
