Overview

Histry 
 
 
            The Devas – those in the celestial world – once begged the Lord to show them a place on earth equal to Kasi-Varanasi.  Lord asked them to place His Brahmmadanda on the floor which moved towards River Tambiraparani and stood at Tirupudaimarudur where the temple stands today.  Lord Shiva said that the place where the Brahmmadanda stopped was the place equal to Kasi.
 
           The region was under the rule of Veeramarthanda then.  He came to this place dense with Mardha trees for hunting.  He targeted a deer which hid itself in the hole of a tree.  The king ordered to cut the tree to get the deer out.  But blood came out of the tree where the king found a Shivalinga with a hit on the head caused by the instrument.  He heard a voice saying that Shiva himself graced them through the deer.   He built the temple as directed by the Lord.
 Indira, the king of Devas once held Jupiter in high esteem as his Guru.  As Jupiter did not give much respect to him, he adopted Viswarupa a demon as his Guru then.  Indira came to know that Viswarupan was more concerned with the welfare of his own community ignoring that of the Devas and performing yagnas for the demons.  Indira simply killed Viswarupa by strangulating his neck and incurred the Brahmmahati sin for committing the murder.  Indira came to this place with his wife Indirani, bathed in the Surendra Moksha Theertha on the banks of Tambiraparani, performed penance on Lord Shiva and got relieved of the sin
.
       Karuvur Chithar, celebrated Shiva devotee came to this place to worship Shiva.  When he reached the northern bank of Tambiraparani, the river was in spate and could not cross the river to reach the temple.  He spoke to Lord Shiva saying, “being in the midst of Marudha trees spilling fragrance from their flowers, can’t you help me to reach you.” Lord just leaned on a side to hear Chithar more clearly keeping his hand on the ears.  The Lord advised Karuvur Chithar to simply cross the river with his thoughts resting on Him.  Chithar did so and worshipped the Lord to his full satisfaction. As the Lord leaned on a side to hear Chithar, He is found leaning on a side.
 
There are scars on the head and chest of the Lord caused by injuries of sickle cut and horns of a deer.  Hence no abhishek is performed but only an oil application instead.
 
Mother Gomathi Amman on the left of Lord’s shrine is brought from Komal hills as directed by a voice.  She has the Rudraksha body and graces the devotees.  A Brahmmadanda – staff-is also installed before the Lord on the right side.
