Offering of Brinials

Vazhutananga naivedyam (offering of Brinjals) is one of the peculiar vazhivadus in the temple. It has been experienced by many that partaking of this naivedyam and e few days of bhajan cure stomach ailments. There is a legend behind this. One aged devotee was suffering stomach-ache which could not be cured even after expert treatment by several doctors. In his agony he resorted to Kutalmanikyam temple to observe bhajan. One night he had a dream in which the Lord appeared before him and advised him to pluck 101 brinjals from his garden and offer the same to Him. This was done and after partaking of the naivedyam he was completely cured. Since then brinjals came to be regarded as a special item of offering to the deity.
