VAITHEESWARAN KOIL

'The traditional belief that the birds Jatayu and Sampati, the Rigveda, Lord Subrahmanya and the Sun all offered worship to Siva here is strengthened by the reference to the place in Thevaram as Pull Iruku Vel Ur (Pull means birds; Iruku is the Rigveda; Vel stands for Subrahmanya; Ur, the Sun).

Siddhamurta Teertham. This is the most important Teertham of all, and is situated in front of the Goddess' temple. It - is also known as Goksheera Teertham. As
Kamadhenu in Krita Yuga bathed the deity here with her milk which flowed into this Teertham; Ikshusara Teertham as it tasted like cane juice; Jatayu Teertham as Jatayu
bathed here in Dwapara Yuga. It is here that a Brahmin called Sundara got rid of his white leprosy and Angaraka of his red leprosy.
