spiritual treasure house contains three separate shrines built in
memory of three demon bhaktas at it. It is a great punya sthala and
it fulfilled the desires of the formidable demons called Jalandhara,
Onan and Kanthan, the last two being the famous generals of Banasura.
As their desires then appeared pious, the Lord granted them then and
there and hence He was endearingly called Onakanteeswarar, implying
that the demons worshipped here. Sundara Nayanar sang one of his
master pieces `Neyum Palum' ecstatically on his visit here, when
there fell at once gold coins from above. Such is the glory of this
compassionate Lord. There are three koils - one, for Onan; the
second for Karithan and the last for Jalandar. All are visited with
great veneration and they are exceedingly popular.
