TIRUCHENDUR - SHANMUGA TEMPLE 

Our next destination is the sea-shore temple of Subrahmanya, the Devasainnadhyaksha, whose matchless military generalship, superb strategy brought resounding victory to the amarapuravasis and freed them from asura menace. It is from this strategic point, the legends say that he entered upon a relentless war and won it in the end. It is from that scene of action, a monumental event that took place opened the eyes of a blind alien despoiler; inestimable loss was recovered; sanctity maintained and a peerless miracle demonstrated.

The chief villain of the piece was a Dutch plunderer, whose dastardly sordid act was timely detected by no other than that invincible valorous son of Gowri and Shankar - the hero of this drama. The time of action was around the middle of seventeenth century, to be precise in the year of 1648. The Europeans who entered India through Calicut after Vascodagama were out and out lawless savage plunderers, whose greedy eyes roved over everything for seizure and confiscation, regardless of its sanctity and antiquity.
