TIRUVENGADU

The image of Lord Nataraja has seven Ayudham (weapons), i.e., Vetalam, Khadgam, Udukku, Mani, Kedayam, Kapalam and Trisulam. Opposite the Lord is Bhadrakali with eight hands in a sitting posture.

Another prominent shrine is that of Meikandar. The Sthalapuranam states that there lived a farmer at Pennagadam, by name Achuta Kalappalar, who was childless. As per the instructions of his religious preceptor, he came to Tiruvengadu and started worshipping the Lord, to be blessed with a child. One day, the Lord appeared to him in his vision and told him that he was not destined to get a child in that birth.

'Then the devotee bowed before the God and said: "It is not necessary that I should get a child, because I am not a king having a big kingdom to be succeeded to by a prince. However, is it not necessary that I should get a child who will sing the glories of the Lord?"
