THE FIERCE LORD OF ETTUMANUR

Wilderness

Once Lomaharsha, a disciple of Sage Vyasa, came to the temple to have darshan of Siva. He got down into a nearby tank but slipped and fell. At this, the onlookers burst into laughter. The sage was wild at this insult and cursed that the place would turn into a wilderness, denuded of population. Thus under the spell of this curse, this place remained for a thousand years a thick forest inhabited by wild animals.

During one of these days Sage Vilwamangalam came to the place. By then the period of the curse was over. Due to his divine insight Vilwamangalathu Swamiyar discovered the Shivalinga and offered puja with the Plantains and molasses he had brought for his food. Even today, these articles are given as the first offerings (Naivedyam) to the deity.
