This thousand year old sanctuary is the image of proceeding with design custom of the Chola skilled workers and it is one of the later Chola sanctuaries which have stayed unrivaled as far as engineering greatness to date. Paying homage to this marvellous skill, Prompt Tours & travels decided to be the best travel agency in Chennai by providing pilgrimage tour packages of the highest devotional value.  The engineering and figures show perfect creative aptitudes.

The sanctuary vimana (place of worship segment of a sanctuary and its superstructure) is assembled like a chariot (ratha) like structure drawn by two ponies. The left wheel is adhered to the earth since Lord Ganesha squeezed it.

The manchabhadra upa-pita or platform frames the base. The padma banda adhisthana (socle) comprises of 18 diverse particular shaped levels (from base up); Upana or upatala (the base), Padma (a layer of lotus theme), Jagathi (straight), Kumuda (round), Kanta (neck), Patti and Kapota (layer of lotus petals). Nagara vimana has kirtimukha kudu on every heading and a round kalasa and stupi.

During the time of Dasaratha (Lord Ram’s father) Lord Sani had eagle as vaahan, Dasa buja rishaba thandava Murthy is taken out during every Pradosham – this vigraham is available ONLY in this temple.

Legend of the Temple

Lord Murugan, before waging war against demon Surapadma sought forgiveness in this holy site and received his bow (“Vil” in Tamil) from his mother. Here, we can see a procession idol of Lord Murugan with a bow in his hand along with his consorts. He is praised as “Sri Villenthiya Velavar”. Since planet Mars worshiped Lord Murugan here, a procession idol of Mars is also present.

According to legend, Devas who were big enough to churn the nectar from the ocean (Thirupparkadal) turned small while consuming it because they failed to worship Lord Vinayakar. Angry, Lord Vinayakar taught them a lesson by taking away the pot. Feeling his powers, When Lord Vinayakar passed through the Kadamba forest, a drop of nectar fell and became a Swayambu Lingam. Realizing their stupidity, Indira and Devas came here and begged Lord Vinayakar’s for a solution.

Lord Vinayakar in turn pardoned and advised them to worship Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva, responding to their prayers by returning the nectar and was in turn idolised here as Sri Amirthakadeswarar – “Amirtham” means nectar, “Kada” means (pot) and Easwar means the lord. Lord Indra, so happy with getting “Amrit” here, this temple gets the name “Karakkoil”.
