TIRUPURAMBIAM SRI SATCHINADESWARAR TEMPLE

Sri Satchinadeswarar temple is one of the Devara Paadal Petra Shiva Sthalam and 46th siva sthalam on the North side of river Cauvery in Chozha Nadu.

Temple History - An Overview

 This is an ancient temple of God Shiva dedicated to Sri Satchinathar. After the flash flood this place remains and unchangeable. So this place has known as Tirupurambiyam.

During the end of "Kreyathayuga" the Earth was destroyed by the water forces of 7 Seas. Thirupurambiam was existing from the Kreyathayuga and Lord Shiva wished to preserve this Holy place "Thirupurambiyam" and passed this holy work of preserving Thirupurambiyam to his son Lord Ganesha. Lord Ganesha using the powers of "Pranava Mantra" - Holy vibration "Om" controlled the forces of the 7 seas into one well and saved this holy place from "Pralaya" as per Lord Shiva. This well is known as Yezhu Kadal Kinaru.

TEMPLE GREATNESS

SATCHINATHAR: A girl, Rathnavalli by name came to this place with a youth arranged by the parents for her marriage, came to this place before their marriage due to force of circumstances. Unfortunately, the youth died of snake bite but was restored to life by Saint Ganasambandar who was incidentally present in the place. He also conducted their wedding, with Lord Shiva and the Vanni tree as witnesses. As Lord Shiva was witness (Satchi) to the marriage, He is praised as Satchinathar.

KING HARIDWAJAN: King was suffering from a disease called Muyalagam due to the curse of Sage Durvasa got cured in this temple by the grace of Lord Shiva.

DAKSHINAMOORTHY GRACE: Lord was too merciful to grant His darshan in the form of Dakshinamurthy to a poor wood cutter who was carrying fuel to the temple from the banks of the tank in the east of the temple.
