Chayavaneswarar Temple

Chayavaneswarar Temple, Visit Chayavaneswarar Temple of Tamilnadu, Temple tour of Chayavaneswarar Temple, Religious placeLocation : At Chayavanam, Two Miles From Tiruvengadu, Tamil Nadu
Presiding Deity : Lord Shiva

About a mile away the confluence of River Kaveri with the sea, known as Kaveri- patnam, and two miles from Tiruvengadu, there exists an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Siva revered as Chayavaneswarar. The place is known as Chaikadu (Chayavanam). Religious anchorage Much ecclesiastical adherance is anchored to this temple and the pilgrims after sanctification at the confluence of worship of Lord Chayavaneswara seek his blessings. According to Hindu religious rites an ablution at the concourse of a river with the sea is considered religiously meritorious. Connection With Iyarpagai Nayanar The temple attained legendary importance for its connection with Iyarpagai Nayanar, one of the sixty-three Nayanmars or Saivite saints of the South. The story goes that the Nayanar used to spend all his wealth for temples, feeding sadhus and satisfying their desires. It so happened that once an old man approached him with the very absurd request to send his (Nayanars) wife to him as a gift. Without hesitation Iyarpagai Nayanar satisfied the desire of the old man. But this created commotion among his relatives, who never appreciated such a gift. However socially degrading it may be, he insisted upon his wife to follow the sadhu and she did so. The old man transformed into Lord Shiva, praised the Nayanar for his unstinted devotion towards Saivite saints and blessed him with liberation. Lord Shiva tests the depth of devotion of his devotees and rewards them when they stand the test.
