Greatness Of Temple

    The foot print scar of divine cow Kamadenu is still visible on the head of Lord Patteeswarar. The heads of the eight directions are figuring in the vimana of the sanctum sanctorum.

    The vimana of Mother Pachai Nayaki is square in shape. There is a shrine for other Ambica Mother Manonmani. Lord Muruga is in between the shrines of Lord and Mother in the Somaskanda form. As this is a salvation centre, Lord Bhairava appears without His dog vahan as Gnana Bhairava.

    The shrine of Lord Varadaraja Perumal is outside the shrine of Mother Pachainayaki. Sri Anjaneya in the temple is made of wood. As Lord played here as one from a lower community, the sapling planting festival is devotionally celebrated in the temple. There is a tamarind tree in front of the temple the seeds of which do not germinate if sown, indicating the truth that those pray to Lord Patteeswara will attain total salvation and will br freed from the cycle of births and deaths.

    The bones of those dead, when placed in the Noyyal river flowing near by the temple turn white stones, it is said. It is believed that Lord utters the five lettered Na Ma Shi Va Ya mantra on the ears of those dead and takes them with Him. It is a wonder that no germs could be found in cow dung around this place.
