Shri Piravi Marundeeswarar

Temple’s Peculiarity:

Sri Piravi Marundeeswarar Temple is in Thiruthuraipoondi near Thiruvarur district. The presiding deity here is Lord Siva in the form of Gajasamhara Murthy killing a demon, which is an allegory of Lord Siva annihilating the arrogance, pride and jealous from the hearts of the devotees. It is believed that if people offer prayers during full moon days and new moon days they will have a prosperous life devoid of sorrows.


From way back in Tarukavanam there lived some Rishies who were very proud and arrogant. They believed that Lord Siva attained his Godly character because of their Yagas. So in order to teach them a lesson Lord Siva came in disguise as a handsome beggar, mesmerized by his handsomeness all the Rishies followed him madly, like adding fuel to the fire God Vishnu too came in disguise as a glamorous lady, again these Rishis went mad behind her. After some time they realized that they have been fooled by the both and so they planned to destroy them with the help of an elephant. At this point Lord Siva revealed himself and killed the elephant and also the pride of Rishies. This is the legend behind this temple.
