VAIDESWARAN KOIL

There are many mini shrines housing the august deities, like Vinayaka, Muthukumarar, Balambal called Thaiyalnayaki etc. It contains many shining bronze statues of deities, like Angaraka, Nataraja, Jatayu, Somaskandhar, Singaravelar, Bikshadanar etc. According to tradition it is here Sri Rama performed the last rites for Jatayu. Moreover, Angaraka, Surya, Sampathu, Jatayu etc. worshipped the Moolavar - Maheswar with great veneration. Hence deemed a most visit-worthy place.

Lord Subrahmanya here goes by the name of Muthakumarar and the idol is very big in size and attracts most due to the stonecutter's excellent craftsmanship. As the story .goes- Lord Muruga got his powerful vel from here. Krithigai festival is celebrated with great éclat. Another plus point this holy temple claims is, it is here alone the Planet Mars - Angaraka is worshipped and nowhere in India such significance is given to him. Weekly pujas are performed with utmost enthusiasm. His bronze statue is extremely beautiful and wrings veneration by its size, lusture and decoration. It is here he was cured of his disease too.
