TIRUVENGADU

The well-known Saivite saints, Appar, Sundarar and Manickavachakar have visited the place and composed many songs in praise of the Lord. According to the Sthalapuranam, Indra, the heavenly elephant Airavatam, Lord Brahma, Agni,
Surya, Subrahmanya, Vyaghrapada and many other angels have worshipped the Lord and got their desires fulfilled. The famous saint Pattinathar was associated with this holy place and the name given him by their parents was Tiruvengadar. Among the 274 famous Siva temples, Sri Umapati Sivachariyar has given this temple the 11th place.

Tiruvengadu is considered to be as sacred as Banaras, and the belief is that all those who bathe in the different Teerthams here and worship the deities will be blessed with children. There are three Teerthams inside the temple, viz., the Agni, Surya and Chandra, which are said to have been created out of the three drops which fell from Lord Siva's eyes when he was dancing.
