TIRUTTANI

The mission ef Subrahmanya's incarnation was fulfilled when he vanquished the demon Soora padman and his hordes at
Tiruchendur and the huntsman at Merpady in Tondaimandalam. The happy reunion with Valli brought peace to his mind. The
agitated physical condition was relaxed, peace and tranquillity prevailed at his new abode Tiruttani; that is why Tiruttani is known also as Cheruttani (Cheru means anger, tani means cooling down).

As Kailas is the chosen abode of Lord Siva, Tiruttani is the chosen home for Subrahmanya. Tiruttani is a great pilgrim centre. A sum of about Rs. 6,000 is realised per annum by way of pilgrim tax. There are about 150 choultries and rest houses in this place. The temple is built facing the east. Distribution of food to the poor is considered very meritorious in this sacred shrine and pilgrims make it a point to feed the hungry and the destitute in numbers, according to their might. It is said that any good action done here acquires enormous accretion of merit. As Subrahmanya is in a blissful mood at Tiruttani, divine grace is readily obtained there.
