VAIDESWARAN KOIL

His brothers and the powerful army fought on land, under the sea and in the air causing irreparable loss to the Devasena, although Lord Shanmuga ably and .expertly guided his army in the operations, proving more than a match to the danavas from the start to finish. Lord Shanmuga won the battle. Yet countless fell victims. The battle ground presented a ghastly sight with the mutilated heads, mangled limbs, maimed hands, severed trunks and disfigured faces-many soldiers appeared beyond identification. 

Moreover, their agonized wails, painful yells, fearful screams reverberating the whole earth went tip and deafened the ears of gods. The blood drenched battle field appeared like a burial ground. Though the wounded desired death most, but could not die. Haven't they drunk amrita? In their living death, they made supplication for instant help. Who could but Lord Siva, the Omni compassionate help? Isn't he the compassion in motion? When the heart-rending cries fell on his ears, he at once metamorphosed himself into a doctor and launched the relief programme putting on the Physician's robe and ordering the Pramadaganas to follow and assist the angels in their first- aid activities first. They obeyed. 

He descended at the same spot, where the present Vaideeswaran Koil stands. Needless to continue all the wounded, recovered at the mere touch of that all-merciful Maheswar. In recognition of that momentous act, Lord Maheswar was adored then there both by gods and humans. At the humble request of humanist sages, the Lord accepted to abide in this place for ever to liberate the genuine adorers.
