LORD OF VAIKOM

Khara took hold of the lingas-one in each hand and the third in his mouth and journeyed through the sky southward. On the way he was overcome by the weight of the objects he carried and hence was constrained to descend and rest for a while. He set the linga in his right hand at a sacred spot, knee-deep in water. After a while he resumed the journey and tried to remove the linga but it would not move, try as he may, with all his might.

At this juncture, Saint Vyaghrapada appeared on scene. Khara was waiting exactly for this. He entrusted the linga to the care of the saint and proceeded to Ettumanur, 25 km away, where he installed the left-hand linga. The one in the mouth was deposited at Kaduthuruthy midway between the two places.
