TIRUPURAMBIYAM - SAKSHESWARAR TIRUKKOVIL

This ancient temple has a long legend and is associated with many Saiva saints and their miraculous powers. It is here the Sunda and Upasunda, the formidable demons obtained rare boons from the Presiding deity Lord Siva and to destroy and rid of their atrocities, Devendra sent Tilottama, the court dancer, who by her infinite charms accomplished the Daivakarya. And in this divya Saiva dharitri, once the illustrious Saiva saint Sambandar revived the dead youth at the tearful appeal of an unfortunate young widow. This episode was witnessed by Lord Siva and blessed all, and hence He was named approximately Saksheeswarar. Its historic importance was attested by the Chola king Kulothunga I. It also witnessed the historic battle fought between Pallava and Pandyan kings; and that scene of action is now called Nattam.

The Vinayaka of this holy place is not made of stone, but of some sea products, which do not stand daily bath; so once a year the idol is given Madhu abhishekam - pouring of honey over it. And it is believed that this august Vinayaka saved the world from Pralaya once, and hence the name Pralayankatha Pillayar. The Vinayakar and Subrahmanya along with Lord Siva are deemed very powerful gods. Unending streams of Duhkartis seeking boons visit this place throughout the year and they are relieved of their worries. Devotion never goes un-rewarded, nor the gods deviod4ddiscretionary powers. They only await the visit of ardent asthikas for grant of boons.

It lies 8 km of Kumbhakonam commanding all transport facilities.
