KALIYAR KOIL

The Mother of the Universe took pity on them and killed the demon in a fierce battle and relieved them of their sufferings. The place where the Devas first met the Devi, came to be known as Kandadevi (Kanda means 'seen' in Tamil', - The fort which was built by the Devas for the Devi to reside in s known as Devakottai or Devakottai (Kottai means fort).

The present town of Devakottai has derived its name thus. The place where the demon was conquered is known as Vetriyur (Vetri means victory); the place where the flag-mast of the Demon's chariot was broken into two is known as Kodikulam (Kodi means flag and Kulam means tank); the place where flowers were showered by the Devas on the Devi returning with victory after killing the Demon, is known as Poongudi (Poo - means flowers).
