VAITHEESWARAN KOIL

Moreover it was with this Teertham that
Daksha had his head and body joined together after Siva punished him for his disrespect. A Muni called Sadamantha was in puja near the tank after bathing therein, when a frog chased by a snake from the tank jumped on to him. Disturbed, he pronounced that there should be no snake or frog in this tank. Accordingly even to this day, no frog or snake can be seen in this tank.

Kodanda Teertham is in the southwestern corner of the temple and a deity of Sri Rama is enshrined here. It is also here that Triseelam was cured of his neck trouble by bathing.

When Sri Rama was living in the forest with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, they came here and offered prayers to their ancestors. Hence this Teertham is known as Rama Teertham. The Sthalavriksha is the Vanni tree.
