BHAVANI - SANGAMESWAR TEMPLE

How Collector Garrow was saved by Mother Vedanayaki

The scene of action is laid in Bhavani, just opposite the Lord Sangameswar's temple. The time of action is in the early nineteenth century, precisely in 1804. It was a hot summer noon at it. The characters are only two - One is Mother Vedanayaki, the local name for Mother Parvathi, sharing the half body of her classic spouse Lord Maheswar, one of the Trimurtis holding the office of Destruction - snapping the bonds, binding mankind to this mundane world through the vicious circles of births and deaths, and the other is a European.

This eventful miracle of an alien - British officer saved by the omni benevolent Mother occurred at the confluence of rivers Cauvery, Bhavani and Amudha - an underground river joining them and made this confluence Dakshina Prayag as portrayed in Tamil legend. The much-hallowed and world-renowned Prayaga lies at Allahabad - where Saraswati as antarvahini, underground river meets Ganga and Yamuna. There is a grand temple here dedicated to Lord Siva, worshipped in the name of Sangameswar. It is quite an ancient temple existing even before the first Pallava king Mahendra Varma. Its entire background is scrupulously and elaborately recorded in Tamil legend called Bhavani Kudal Puranam.
