TIRUVENGADU

Again the demon performed penance and got a soola (spear) from Lord Siva. Then again he created trouble. God sent Nandi, but Nandi could not fight against him since he was holding the soola of his master, He sustained nine wounds and returned to his master saying that he would not fight against his master's Vel.

The Lord got angry that this chief attendant Nandi had been almost killed by that demon (Marutwasura). He at once opened his third eye. A Jyothi came flashing. On seeing the Jyoti the demon could not fight. He turned into another Jyoti and mixed with the jyoti formed out of the opening of the third eye. The Rishis prayed to God that the jyoti might be turned into a form. Then the jyoti turned into Aghoramurti, which was installed in a portion of the temple. It is a perfect picture of Siva in' his rage and in a pose of action. The idol is perfect and a very rare specimen of the height of Dravidian art in molded stone.
