TIRUVIDAILULI - SIVASUBRAHMANYA TEMPLE

This two-in-one ancient holy kshetra has a great legendary significance and it is drawing unending streams of devotees throughout the year. Here both father and son are worshipped at a time and hence two-fold advantage for Saivates and Subrahmanya devotees. According to Sthalapurana, it is here Muruga offered prayers to Maheswar before launching the, formidable war against demons. On his victorious return, Lord Siva advised his son Muruga to abide in this kshetra and fulfill the desires of the visiting bhaktas. Loyal son expressed his mute acceptance. Hence the temple enshrines both the archamurtis, one behind the another. The originally worshipped Sivalinga is just behind the Murugan. The Siva Peruman is called Tirukumareswara and the main deity Siva Subrahmanya. This uniqueness of having the most adorable Sivalingas in front and back is luring pious theists and they are visiting with unparalleled devotion deeming their lot infinitely fortunate. Another strange feature that greets the visitors is-there are many attractive sacred images, like Nataraja, Narasimha, Chandrasekhar etc. bearing the forms and aspects of Subrahmanya, though called in different names. Nowhere this oddity is seen, nor devotees ever venture to conceive such fortune. A big size Vinayaka image is installed in befitting mini-shrine in the maha mandap. Nityanaimithika worship is offered to all the deities with due reverence according to agamas. Due to embodying the most worshipful deities in one shrine, its attraction, needless to say, greater.

This sacred shrine lies between Mayuvaram and Taragambadi bus route, accessible by bus from either side.
