has two tanks called Siddhamritha thirtham and. Jatayukundam inside
the prakaia itself. And a bath in them cures all the skin diseases,
says the priest. Moreover, the 'water of the siddhamrit is so sacred
that evil spirits possessing women flee at once, if they take bath
in it. As the tank is just opposite Mother Parvathi's sannidhi, the
water, it seems, acquired such miraculous powers of releasing the
victims from the paisachika effects, besides curing skin diseases.
And look ! it is completely devoid of acquatic animals, like frog,
fish or snakes. There are many, mini-shrines housing the august
deities, like Vinayaka, Muthukumarar, Balambal popularly called
Thaiyalnayaki etc. It contains many shining bronze statues of
deities, like Angaraka, Nataraja, Jatayu, Somaskandhar, Singaravelar,
Bikshandanar etc. According to tradition it is here Sri Rama
performed the last rites for Jatayu. Moreover, Angaraka, Surya,
Sampathi, Jatayu etc., worshipped the Moolavar Maheswar with great
veneration. Hence deemed one of the most visit-worthy places.
