TIRUVANAIKKAVAL

Once, a Chola king with his queen visited this temple and to present the chain of pearls worn by the queen to the Lord. When the King and the Queen were taking bath in the River Kaveri, the chain was lost in the river.

The King came to the temple with great sorrow.Then the priests started conducting Abhishekam to the Lord with water brought
from River Kaveri. To the surprise of the King, the Queen and all others present, the missing ornament of the Queen was found dropping on the Lord from the pot emptied over him.

The Devi in the temple is known as Ahilandeswari or Akilandanyaki or Ahilanda -eswari, which means that she presides over the en Universe. There are nine Teerthams in this temple, all of which held very sacred. Go-Puja i.e., Cow- worship is conducted daily in this temple; Annabhish ekam (heaping cooked rice on the Lingam) is al a daily eature. Unlike in other temples, there are eight flag masts this temple in addition to the one placed in front of the Lord.
