SUCHINDRAM

It is this sacred land that was famous for the ordeal known as Suchindram Pratyayam, whose very name was tolling death-knell to the culprits, frauds, swindlers, pilfers, crooks, dacoits and a wide variety of their incarnations in multiplicity of colourful dominations thriving only by thieving.  It is here in this Sodhana Kshetra that Indra r6gained his original pleasant form. It is this Mokshapuri that delivered the verdict of prayaschitta for Saraswathi, Llakshmi, Parvathi on expressing paschattapa.  It is here the Trimurthis assumed the form of Mahalinga called Dharmasamvardhini.  

According to scriptures with Brahma in the middle, Vishnu at the bottom and Siva at the top after blessing the immortal couple Anasuya and Atri with three children - Chandra, Durvasa and Dattatreya and are being worshipped as Sthanumalayapperumal.  And it is to this deity, Devendra is doing Ardhajamapuja everyday even today.  It is here Adi Sankara was given the Pranavamantropadesa by Siva himself. 

It is the abhishekwaters of this chief deity that sink in the temple itself and emerge at Kanyakumari.  On account of such meritorious plus points,! this mahakshetra, a repository of art treasure and a haven of heavenly celebrities is claimed by both Saivates, Vaishnavates and Brahmopasakas as their own and hence drawing thousands of devotees throughout the year, since the Satyayuga.
