VEDARANYAM

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Sri Rama, who was very much pleased, turned to Vinayaka, worshipped him and prayed to Vinayaka that henceforth he (Vinayaka) should be known as Veerahatti Vinayaka. Being duly blessed by Lord Vinayaka, Rama took his bath in the Manikarnika, Vedamrita, and Vedanadi, offered sraddhas and kshetrapinda, adored the Lord of Vedavana and the Goddess, and established a linga. By
name Ramanatha, formed a village by name Ramachandrapuram, gave it to the Brahmins and left for Ayodhya.

By the side of the Saivite Nayanmars, there is Veda Vinayaka, whom the four Vedas worshipped. There is yet another Vinayaka in this temple known as Nadukkam Teertha Vinayaka (Nadukkam means trembling caused by anxiety and Teertha means 'who removed'). To allay fear complex a devout prayer before this Vinayaka is a sure cure.

On the summit of Mount Satyagiri, Sage Kasyapa performed a penance for getting a son. Ere long, Lord Siva appeared before the Sage and blessed him with the boon of a son. The Lord added: "The reason for my appearing before you so soon is this. This isthe place where Parvati was once fondling her child. Owing to the scorching rays of the sun, she grew very tired. I gave her shelter by becoming the Vanni Vriksha, which is now before you. Parvati realised that it was myself, prostrated at my feet out of gratitude,
and requested that henceforth anybody who enjoyed the shelter of the tree should have all desires fulfilled.

From that day, I continue to be the Vanni Vriksha". The Lord then disappeared.
Later it so happened that a monkey once placed this Satyagiri by name Gavaya into the hands of Nala who placed it at a point in the forepart of the Setu (the bridge to Lanka). The mount sank to the level of the ground and the Vanni Vriksha alone stands above the ground.
