General Information:

   As a child when Tirujnanasambandar came to this place, two temples were seen high on two sides and there arose a doubt in him which of these was the Siva temple. At that time, Lord Vinayaka of this place pointed to a temple, ?that is the temple of Easwara?. Hence, this Vinayaka is known as ?Jnanasambanda Vinayakar?. Sage Agastya has worshipped the Lord of this place.


Prayers:

   Those, who desire their beauty should be appreciated by others, pray to Ambal.


Thanks giving:

   When their prayer is granted, they perform abhishekam for Swami and Ambal, and offer new clothes.


Greatness Of Temple:

   Sage Agastya was worshipping the Lord of this place. King Urthuvaradan, without knowing this, was driving his car along the sky-space. The car paused and did not move. Hence, this holy place came to be known as ?Therazhundur?.


Temple History:

   Once Parameswara and Mahavishnu played Dice game with Parvati as the umpire. At one phase, there arose a doubt regarding the number of the dice. The umpire Parvati supporting Perumal found fault with Siva. The infuriated Siva cursed Parvati to become a cow. Lord Vishnu felt that because of him only Parvati became a cow and so incarnated as a cowherd in this place. So, the name of the Perumal of this sacred place became ?Aamaruviappan?. Parvati who became a cow went to several sacred places, prayed and finally came to this holy place, worshipped Lord Siva and got back her beautiful figure. She was called ?Soundaryanayaki?. Those who want their beauty to be liked by others can receive Grace from this Ambal. Lord Siva regretted for having cursed Parvati as a cow, came here and taught Veda to the priests -- hence the holy name of the Lord, ?Vedapureeswarar?.
