holy kshetra besides housing a big Sivalinga, possesses an odd image
of huge Nandi, the divine mount of Lord Siva which issues a steady
flow of water from its mouth. It is perennial, and so solves the
water problem to the locals in a way. Hence the name Tiruvural. The
water is feeding the river Vugrakshi flowing near by. The
archamurtis - Umapatteeswar and His spouse Umai Ammal are
adored passionately since they are bestowing grace timely on the
devout bhaktas. This place was sanctified by the penance of Samvarka
mahamuni, the brother of Devaguru Brihaspathi. It is fairly a big
temple of with big temple tank called Parvathi Thirtha.
lies 5 km off Tiruvalam and accessible by bus and train.
