KIELVELUR - BALASUBRAHMANYA TEMPLE

Another fascinating legend links up this kshetra with the famous Nayanmars, the wandering ministers responsible for propagation of Saiva cult in Tamilnadu. According to it, once Sundarar and Sambandar happened to visit this holy kshetra. When they neared it, all on a sudden there came a great flood in the river and stopped them stranding on the opposite bank of the river. They at once invoked Lord's help through their sweet song. Would Paramasiva be ever deaf to such pathetic appeals? Did he not succour assistance to thousands in such precarious times in the past? Soon there appeared a boatman flashing a sweet smile and volunteering his service to the grief stricken - His own bhaktas. He rowed them across the river with great grace and ease and kept them at peace. So the tributary is appropriately named as Odampokky-boat crossing river. These temples received munificence by Tribhuvana Chakravarti, Tanjore kings later endowed it liberally. All nityanaimithika worship is offered with great fervour.

It lies on the Tanjore- Nagapattanam rail route. And Keil Velur is a rail head from which the temple can be reached by cycle rickshaw or even by walking as it is only a mile off the station.
