GUDIMALLAM

Gudimallam is the corrupt form of Gudipallam-a combination of two words, Gudi and pallam, standing for the temple built by Pallava kings. It is found in inscriptions as Tiruvirappambedu also. The temple called Parasurameswaralayam is built on the banks of Suvaranamukhi river. There is a fascinating tale about this place. It runs-once there was a devotee by name Parasurameswara, who was worshipping Lord Siva regularly with exceptional ardour using flowers grown in his tank nearby. The flowers were odd in shape and colours, and grand to look at. The Lord was pleased and conferred bliss on him. Seeing this unseen, a demon one day ventured to pluck all the flowers and offered to Siva. Finding the transgression grievous, the pious Sivabhatka entered into a fierce boxing bout with the demon. When the vanquished demon was about to be crushed, Lord Siva appeared and blessed the both with their desire of Sayujyamukti - merging in him. A big hollow was made in that ground during their fight. A temple that was built later here was called Gudimallam, according to one version. This temple was built in the twelth century AD by Pallavas.
