VAIDEESWARAN KOIL - SELVAMUTHU KUMARASWAMY TEMPLE

Despite being an integral part of the world-renowned Vaideeswaran temple, this imposing sannidhi has special and unique. traditions as that of a separate, independent temple. In the main temple, Lord Siva, as healer of all ailments is worshipped in the name of Vaideeswaran and Mother Parvathi in the role of Thaiyal Nayaki, assisting him as mid-wife in two sannidhis. They are independent of each other. The grand temple facing east is exclusively set apart for Murugan and he is adored in the name of Selvamuthu Kumaraswamy. According to legend, Murugan received his potent weapon "Vel' from his father Maheswar here before entering the war theatre. So held very s ared. This happened on the fifth day of Panguni masa, so Brahmotsav is celebrated on this day on a grand scale. Murugan worships Siva for blessing him, with such mahaayudha, that alone brought him victory. The processional deities with Muthu Kumaraswamy in the centre and parents on either side resembling the Somaskandar form are taken out in the streets, when thousands avail that grand sight. Another unique feature of this temple is - during nights, first worship is offered to this deity, and the next to other deities. This Lord was eulogised by great saints such as Sambhandar, Kumaragurupar, and he lifted many saranarthas. This temple has two thirthas deemed very sacred and devotees bathe in them before worshipping. Among the several adorable deities, Angaraka and Vinayaka take pride of place. The sthalavriksha is Margosa and, it has a great legend.

It lies 7 km of Sirkali, a famous pilgrim town of Tamilnadu and it is a rail head itself, accessible by bus too.
