TIRUVENGADU

Lord Siva got very annoyed at the disrespectful behavior of Yama towards his devotee. He came out of the Linga and punished Yama for his presumption. So this place came to be known as Swetaranyam.

Another unique feature about-the temple is that the image of Lord Siva has five faces, Easanam, Tatpurusham, Aghoram, Vamadevam and Sadyojatam. Aghoraswarupam is on the southern side. The Sthala Vrikshas are Vilvam", Vadaval, and Konrai. The Vilva Vriksham is near the shrine of the Devi, the Vadaval on the southern side of the Chandra Teertham and the Konrai tree behind the shrine of Aghoramurti in the second prakaram.
