AZHAGAR KOIL

There is a legend stating that Bhairava is none else than Siva in his Ghora Swarupam, i.e., in rage, and hence in all Siva temples he has been assigned a more prominent place than Chandikeswara who is supposed to be in charge of the entire temple. It is interesting to see that a shrine is dedicated to Bhairava (one of the other forms of Siva) in this great Vaishnavite temple.

There is an interesting legend connected with the Kshetra Palaka of this temple. In those days after finishing all pujas and
worship in the night the priest used to lock the ' door of the temple and entrust the keys to  Kshetra Palaka. One day,it so happened that the priest locked the doors leaving his child inside the temple and handed over the keys to Kshetra Palaka. Then he found his child missing.
