TIRUMULLAIVAYIL

Tondaiman, coming with Nandi and Siva's regiment, created fear in Kurumban and Kantan. They surrendered at once and
presented the beams of Erukku. King Tondaiman used these beams as pillars to the temple. Erukku is a small-sized plant and it is a marvel how large beams were obtained from it.

It is further said that Nandi brought also Bhairava, the patron deity of the enemy chief, to Malativanam. King Tondaiman then built a beautiful temple, enshrining the Siva Lingam and establishing a township. A beautiful tank was constructed. The name of Siva's consort Parvati here is Latamadhyamba or Kodiyidai Nayaki. Kodiyidai means waist as thin as a creeper. In this temple Siva does not have any abhishekam. As the Sivalingam was wounded by the sword cut of Tondaiman; only sandal paste and abhishekam cover it. Is done to the Peetham.
