KIELVELUR - BALASUBRAHMANYA TEMPLE

Situated on the bank of Adampokki, a tributary of holy Cauvery, visited by Siva Peruman; eulogised by celebrated Nayanmars; patronised by imperial kings and guarded Bhadrakali in the role of Kshetrapalaki, this much-hallowed ancient temple has a very long legend that demands reverent attention and instant visitation to the sannidhi. The legend begins with killing of Surapadma, the formidable Trilokakanta by Muruga, the valorous Field-Marshal of celestial army. Shanmuga contacted the Veerahatya dosha - sin of killing Surapadma, the well-knoll warrior of ineffable reputation. To get rid of this, he selected this sacrosanct spot for meditation and cleared the jungle with the help of his courageous and potent Navaviras. And caused a grand temple built by Deva Dakshan, the renowned architect. 

After completion, he dug a Pushkarini with his well for  sacred bath. He installed a big Sivalinga in the temple adorned with Pushkala Vimana. Propitiating Lord Siva, he started his penance with austerity of rare kind. Realising his penance would be causing inestimable harm to animate and inanimate world, Nandi tried to disturb and nip it in the bud itself. Murugan also sought Jaganmata's help to shield the worlds from destruction. As, prayed for, assuming the role of Bhadrakali she protected the worlds from grave danger of extinction. Highly contented, Omnicompassionate Siva graced His darsan and burnt to ashes the much harassed dosha. Lord Siva bade Muruga to abide in this holy place and assist the devotees in their spiritual progress. And it was accepted. At this happy moment lord Siva entreated Mother Parvathi to take her seat here in the name of Bhadrakali and exercise round the clock vigilance over this kshetra. She obeyed with a smile. So this kshetra houses shrines for the triple deities - Siva, Bhadrakali and Muruga.
