KANCHI KUMARAKOTTAM - SOMASKANDAR TEMPLE

Error is error, committed by god, god man or man. And it is accompanied by castigation and ends with retribution. This scriptural truth is well-known to every man or God: for, there is none, who is free from erring at one stage or the other in life. This kshetra is a standing proof of Murugan's atonement of the sin for imprisoning Brahma, the Creator once for a frivolous cause, committed for fun. According to Purana, Balamuruga, one morn met Brahma by accident and asked him to explain the real import of Pranava. To do it, all on a sudden is tougher than Herculean task. So Brahma stammered and blabbered; for, extempore explanation in the easy diction .within the range of an infant is neither possible, nor would it be convincing. Instantly, Balamuruga imprisoned Brahma.

Learning it, Lord Maheswar rushed to the scene, and releasing Brahma ordered Muruga to pray for apology. When refused he castigated him severely and bade him to go to Kanchi and do penance for expiation of the sin. Balamurugan had no choice left than to do as was bidden. Coming down to this spot, he installed a Sivalinga before doing penance. On taking bath in the holy Uchchani thirtha, he started severe penance. Pleased with it, Lord Maheswar gave darsan and freed him from that mahapapa.
