Greatness Of Temple:

   Some traders procured pepper in Kerala and smuggled it to Madurai telling the authorities that the merchandise was just Dal. They intended to evade the tax payable on pepper. Reaching home, when they opened the bags, they were shocked to find only dal and not pepper. They went to lord Chockanathar in Madurai and apologized for their act. They were advised to pray to Vaidhyanathar. It is said that the message of the story was to teach a lesson to tax evaders. Madavar Valagam is one of the holy places where lord Siva performed his miracles (Truvilayadalgal) on the first day of the Panguni Tamil month (March-April) the Says of sun fall on the presiding deity, Vidyanathaswami. Special Poojas are performed to sun on this day. Madavar Valagam can be reached from Srivilliputhur by town bus. Buses are available from Madurai to Srivilliputhur.

Temple History:

   A woman in advanced pregnancy, Sivanesi by name, was proceeding to her mother?s house when she developed the labour pain and prayed to the Lord before the temple. The Lord rushed to her rescue in the form of her own mother and blessed her with safe delivery. He also gave her the water from the Kayalkudi River as medicine. Water of this river is the holy spring of the temple. The mother of the woman came to know that Lord Shiva Himself nursed her daughter and rushed to the temple, where Lord appeared before her with Mother Umadevi.
