This is the temple where Saint Sundarar uttered the first song on Lord addressing him with the first word granted by Lord Himself - Pitha-Mad Man, promising that he would be for Him alone in the world. This is the 14th Shiva temple in Nadunaadu region praised in Thevaram hymns.
Aadi Swathi star day in July-August with a two day festival for Sundarar is celebrated grandly. 10 day Panguni Uthiram with flag hoisting and float festival in March-April; Arudra darshan-Margazhi Tiruvadhirai in December-January; Aavani Puttu-pudding festival in August-September; Skanda Sashti in October-November are other festivals devotionally celebrated in the temple.
Lord Shiva is a swayambumurthy in the temple. It is in this historical temple that Lord Shiva appeared as an old man claiming Sundarar his attendant on his wedding little big man photos
day. After a long dispute and a Panchayat on the issue, Lord took Sundarar to his home in Tiruvennainallur and disappeared near the sanctum sanctorum of the temple leaving His footwear-Padukas- at the entrance. The Padukas are still in the temple for the darshan of the devotees. What is noteworthy in this episode is the procedure followed in settling a dispute. Divine poet Sekkizhar in his Periapuranam describes the scene. Heated arguments were exchanged between the old man-Lord Shiva and Sundarar. The judicial system in deciding a dispute should be under three main principles – Aatchi-tradition, Aavanam-documentary evidence and Ayalar Kaatchi-eye witness. Lord Shiva won the case by producing a document signed by the ancestors of Sundarar as an evidence to prove his claim. The episode is long and quite interesting and spiritually enjoyable.
The temple is open from 6.00 a.m. to 11.00 a.m. and from 5.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m.
