TIRUVANMIYUR

Accordingly Valmiki started Pradakshina and when he came to the west of River Palar along the seacoast of the Bay of Bengal, a voice from above cried out, "I am here". Valmiki stayed on there and offered worship to Lord Siva. Lord Siva was pleased with the worship of Valmiki and gave him darsan on the 'sacred bull by the side of the Vanni tree. Valmiki was very happy and from that day onwards the place was ordained to be named Tiruvanmiyur.

At the request of Valmiki, Lord Siva squeezed five drops of water from his tresses to create the sacred Teerthams, Janmanasani in the east, Kamanasani in the south, Papanasani in the west, Jnana - dayini in the north and Mokshadayini in the centre, on a Poornima day in the Tamil month of Panguni (March - April). Hence that day is considered especially propitious for worship in Tiruvanmiyur temple.
