TIRUCHENDUR

It is here Shanmuga used Devendra as his vehicle, during the war with -Surapadma and his brothers; it is here in this divya kshetra, Maya the celestial architect built a temple for Siva at the bidding of Shanmuga to worship him before and after that war.  

It is in this holy land, the Lord brought Patalaganga by piercing his lance into the sand bed; it is to the building of this sacred temple tower, the Lord performed miracles of changing ashes and salt into gold coins to making payment to the laborers; it is this temple's Moolavar that was robbed by the Dutch and dropped into sea, when storms broke out signaling danger to their existence; it is at this place, and to this presiding deity, prominent Saivate saints like Nakkirar, Arunagirinathar and Kumaraguruparar composed verses eulogising the valour of Shanmuga; it is this mokshapuri that cured Adi Sankara of his illness after prayers, and here he composed Subrahmanya Bhujangam. 

Sanctified with many more of such awe-inspiring episodes, this divya kshetra is exuding divinity and blessing the devotees from the Kritayuga onwards.  Hence the perennial attraction for theists of every sect and denomination, besides tourists of all nationals.
