TIRUCHENDUR

Of the six sacred abodes -- Arupadi Veedus of Shanmuga, the Chief-Field-Marshal of the celestial army, Tiruchendur enjoys the unique honour of a highly cherished pilgrim centre of eternal significance, for both Saivites and Shanmugites Its history is bristled with many a spectacular episode that won for Shanmuga immortal glory as a formidable warrior of matchless strategy, and peerless antagonist of inimitable humanism. And being the seashore temple dedicated to both father and son - Siva and Shanmuga renowned for infinite mercy, it is drawing thousands of yatris and tourists everyday.

And throughout the year at it. Several legends of this thirtha kshetra shed adequate light on Shanmuga's role as a supreme marshal, who wielded the power of his generalship to such a astonishing magnitude that out-beat the diabolical maneuvers of the ruthless danavas, renowned for special gifts of sub standard war-craft.  And it is here, the benevolent Shanmuga showed his cosmic form to his dreadful foe, and acquired mayura as his vehicle and cock for the banner.
