  TIRUKKADAVUR - ABHIRAMI TEMPLE

Lord Amudakadeswarar is installed in Sankhu Sabha and the background of his emergence is quite exciting. The purana takes us to the time of Ksheerasagaramadan by devas and danavas for immortality with drinking of nectar - amrut rising from Palakadali. After laborious and arduous joint efforts, the nectar pot sprouted. And the devas decided to drink it after bath. They left the pot on a safe place and departed for bath. When they lifted the pot later, it could bot be, the entire nectar was solidified and formed into linga. They named it Amudalingam and installed it here. The archamurti was popularly called Amudakadeswarar. A big temple came in due course with royal patronage and public munificence. The temple has many huge and spacious mandaps and mini-shrines.

In the Mahamandap of the Amudakadeswarar temple there is installed the august murtis of Lord Siva standing behind the linga, worshipped by Markandeya and the scene recreates the exact scene of occurrence of Lord's appearance, when Yama visited to take the life of Markandeya.
