TIRUCHENDUR - BALA SUBRAHMANYA SWAMY TEMPLE

UNIQUENESS

Of the six sacred abodes - Arupadi Veedus of Shanmuga, the Chief Field-Marshal of the celestial army, Tiruchendur enjoys the unique honour of a highly cherished pilgrim centre of eternal significance, for both Saivates and Shanmugites. Its history is packed with many a spectacular episode that won for Shanmuga immortal glory as a formidable warrior of matchless strategy, and peerless humanist of inimitable glory. And being a sea shore temple dedicated to both father and son - Siva and Shanmuga renowned for infinite mercy, it is drawing thousands of yatris and tourists everyday. And throughout the year at it. Several legends of this thirthakshetra shed adequate light on Shanmuga's role as a supreme Field-Marshal, who wielded the power of his generalship to such as astonishing magnitude that out-beat the diabolical maneuvers of the ruthless danavas, renowned for special gifts of sub standard war-craft. And it is here, the benevolent Shanmuga showed his cosmic form to his dreadful foe, and acquired mayura as his vehicle and cock for the banner. It is here Shanmuga used Devendra as his vehicle, during the war with Surapadma and his brothers; it is here in this divyakshetra, Maya, the celestial architect built a temple for;  Siva at the bidding of Shanmuga to worship him before and after Tat war. It is in this, holy land, the Lord brought Patalaganga by percing his lance into the sand bed; it is to the building of this sacred temple tower, the Lord performed miracle of changing ashes and salt into gold coins to making payment to the labourers; it is this temple's Moolavar that was robbed by the Dutch despoiler and dropped into sea, when storm broke out signaling danger to their existence; it is at this place, and to this presiding deity prominent Saivate saints, like Nakkirar, Arunagirinathar and Kumaraguruparar composed verses eulogising the valour of Shanmuga; it is this mokshapuri that cured Adi Sankara of his illness after prayers, and here he composed Subrahmanya Bhujangam.

Sanctified with many more of such awe-inspiring episodes, this divya kshetra is exuding divinity and blessing the devotees from the Kritayuga onwards. Hence the perennial attraction for theists of every sect and denomination, besides tourists of all nationals.
