LORD OF VAIKOM

Legend has it that Siva and Parvati pleased with the devotion of Vyaghrapada gave darshan to him under a peepal tree to the south of the eastern gateway. The place is still marked by a young tree with a raised platform where a lamp is lit daily and special pujas are held. It was in the early hours of the morning on Ashtami day, in the dark fortnight of the month of Vrischikam (November  December), that Vyaghrapada had the divine vision. This day is celebrated as part of the annual Ashtami festival, when, to have early morning darshan of the idol, is considered very auspicious.
