TIRUPPATIRIPULIYAR

Suta Muni taught the 18 Puranas from Vedavyasa whom had learnt the same from Sanatkumara. Sanatkumara learnt it from Nandi, the chief attendant of Lord Siva. Consequently, being the direct disciple in Guruparampara, Suta had been ordained to teach them to men. The sages then prayed to him to narrate the sanctity of a place liked by Lord Siva.

At this Suta Muni narrated the story of the Patiri Vriksha, which is as good as the Kalpa Vriksha of heaven, as was told him by Vedavyasa. He described Tiruppatiri- puliyur, the place that has been blessed with these trees and with numerous holy tanks where heavenly beings had taken their bath for getting rid of various kinds of sins and at last gained their desired objects.

The sanctity of the place could be
well imagined from the fact that the sacred River Ganga, which washes away the sins of earthly beings by mere bath, had to come here daily for washing off the accumulated sins passed into her.
