Greatness Of Temple:

   Lord Brahmma, Sun, Vali, sages Agasthya and Patanjali and Sundaranandar had worshipped in this temple. There is a stone post at the spot where Sage Patanjali performed penance. Poet Padikkasu Pulavar known for his mastery over the Sandam metre in Tamil poetry, was staying here and was getting gold coins from Lord Shiva praising Him with his devotional songs. After his prayers one day, he could not find Lord and Mother and asked Nandi Deva. To help the poet, Nandi Deva turned his head towards the place where the Lord was hiding. Lord Shiva told Nandi that the tail should not wag while the head is on. Yet, the Lord admired Nandi for his kindness to help His devotee. Nandi?s head is slightly turning the other side. It is believed that Nandi worship would help devotees taking their message to Lord. Sage Durvasa performed penance to have mother as his daughter. When she attained marriageable age, the Rishi himself performed Her marriage with Lord Adheeswara. When Mother came to Lord?s house, she found Nandhi turning the other side and came to know the reason. She brought Nandi to Her control and sat on. The joy of Nandi knew no bounds when it had the chance of bearing Mother also. Lord Muruga graces with His consorts Valli and Deivanai. Saint Arunagiriar had mentioned this place as Kulandai Nagar. It is also said that the name relates to Sage Durvas?s Yajna and his getting Mother as a child (Kulandai).


Temple History:
