  CHENGANNUR - BHAGAWATHI AMBALAM

To avoid a that disaster, he solicited the celebrated sage Agasthya to go to south and stay there for maintaining the equilibrium of the raising earth. Finding Agasthya's discontent at raising the auspicious celestial wedding, he promised to meet him with his consort in his hermitage itself after the marriage, beside bestowing the gift of divine sight to see every thing from his own seat itself Satisfied at this unexpected fortune. Agasthya moved anon to the south, humbling the Vindhyas on his way and settled down at Sonadri being the ideal, sequestered spot for meditation and ascetic life. And this sonadri, if translated in to Malayalam becomes Chenukunni, and if 'ur' is added to indicate town, it turns out Chenkunnur-its corrupt form being Chengannur perched to records and popular in common parlance.

As promised, Lord Parameswar visited with Parvathi at his asram and blessed him for doing the Jagadoharanakarya. While staying there, Parvathi had her menses. The divine couple, therefore, dwelt there till the pacificator bath. To keep this alive in memory, a temple was built later, and the image of Lord Parameswar and Parvathi were installed one behind another in two separate shirines separated by a wall.
