VAIDESWARAN KOIL

BACKGROUND

Surapadama, the awful demon created a new hell in heaven and subjected the amarapuravasis to innumerable and insurmountable troubles, besides unending problems given to the pious innocent on earth. When the afflicted prayed to Lord Maha Vishnu for intervention, he advised that none but the valorous son of Gowrishankar could bring them relief by killing that ruthless Surapadman and his brothers Taraka and Singamukha.

Devendra mangaed to get Lord Siva united in wedlock with Parvathi with the assistance Manmatha, and the son Shanmuga born to them embarked upon military campaign against Surapadma. Being an exceptional danava blessed with special boons, he built his impregnable fort in the ocean and met the onslaught using his asura sakti.
