TIRUTTANI

Tiruttani is also known by many other names. As it has all the wealth which was plundered by the Asuras from Heaven, it is called Purnagiri. As the devotees' request will be fulfilled in a second it is known as Kshanikachalam. As Lord Siva, who is the origin of the world (Moolam), worshipped Lord Subrahmanya here, it is called Mooladri. Being full of Neelotpala (blue lilies), this mountain abode of Lord Subrahmanya is called Neelotpalagiri, Neelagiri, Utpalagiri, Alakadri, Kallaragiri, Kavimalai, Kuvalasikhari, Chengalvagiri and Chengalunirkunram. The Lord is also known as Chengalvarayaswamy. As this place will exist even after the deluge, it is called Kalpajit.
