TIRUPPANGUR - SIVAN TIRUKKOVIL

It is a Saiva kshetra of great importance. It is the birth place of a famous Nayanmar called Nandanar, who being a Panchama fell victim to caste-conscious orthodox Brahminism. But his piety moved Lord Siva, who bade the Dwarapalakas to instruct Nandi - His vehicle to move a little further for the full Darshan of His linga to him; for, he was always adoring, standing in the compound opposite the Mulavirat scrumptiously -in the absence of high caste people. It obeyed and that bhakta enjoyed the Darshan for the first time. The Tirukkovil bears testimony to the many episodes connected with that immortal bhakta and hence a visit-worthy place. Among them, the pond supposed to have been dug by that bhakta, single-handed in a single night is found out side the prakara. Its crystal clear water attracts the visitors for a bath at a mere sight. Legend says that he was assisted by Ganapathi during the digging operations.

Among the unique to be seen here is the Sivalinga - it is made of neither stone nor metal. It is an an t-hill and the priests apply civet every Monday to preserve it from decay. Sakti is adored in an imposing small shrine. Many gods, like Brahma, Surya, Chandra, Agni, Indra, sages

like Agasthya, Vyagrapada and Sri Rama along with monarches and Nayanmars worshipped the Lord here and were blessed by Him. Periapuranam narrates the Lord's sports with many episodes.

It lies 5 km off Vaideeswaran Tirukkovil and linked by town bus.
