He arrived at
this hill called Sivagiri then created by the Sage Agasthya along with another
bearing the name of Idumbhu Malai. Agasthya performed penance here for sometime,
due to its extraordinary sublimity and sanctity.
Before moving further down, he
asked his powerful demon servant to follow him carrying the two hills with him
tying them on to a Kavadi. He did. While going, he found the Idumbu Malai going
up into air. He placed two heavy stones on the lighter Idumbu Hill to equalise
the weight, but could not balance it however much he tried.
