TIRUCADAVOOR - KALASAMHARA MURTI TIRUKKOVIL

The well known legend of Markandeya becoming Chiranjeevi with the timely and abundant grace of Lord Siva took its origin here in Tirucadavoor. The sacred linga from which Maheswar emerged to save Markandeya from the yamapasa is popularly known as Amritakanteswarar. It is a well built temple which is luring ardent Siva bhaktas, particularly those who have completed their sixty years of earthly existence to celebrate their Sashtabhadhipurti ceremony with special prayer services to Siva to be blessed with carefree life thence forward.

The Lord is very powerful and confers boons liberally on pious bhaktas. Hence heavy rush. It is one of the 27 Sivan Tirukkovils maintained by Dharmapuram Adhinam. Mother Abhirami, the local name for Parvathi is infinitely merciful and rains boons on her devotees always. The story of Abhirami Bhatter for whom she created the illusion of the full moon on the new moon day can be singled out for this purpose. The Priest sang extempore the glory of the MOTHER in melodious lyrics. The ecstatic outbursts go by the name of Abhirami Anthati.

This is a big temple housing all the worshipful Saivate gods in grand niches. The temple Pushkarini is called Amritha Pushkarini and is lying within the prakara, and a bath in it purges of sins particularly on Fridays and Chaitra - Pournami. Illustrious Saiva Nayanars like Kungulai kalaya and Kari were born and dwelt here and heightened the glory of this holy kshetra. by their ministrations and preachings.

It is 1 km off Mayuvaram Railway Station and accessible by town bus.
