Sightseeing Places Nearby Kallakurichi
Koil of Sri Veeratteswarar, Thirukkoilur : One of the eight Veeratta temples, this temple is (Ashta Veeratta Sthalas). In the Nadunadu region, this is the eleventh Shiva temple praised in the Thevaram hymns. In their Thevaram hymns, Saints Sambandar, Appar, and Sundarar sang the praise of the Lord of the Temple. Saint Gnanasambandar advises them to address the ignorant struggle for enlightenment, saying, "If you want to know what is eternal and avoid letting your legs go into mud and struggling to pick it up if you want to know what is eternal."
Mother Parvathi covered Lord Shiva's eyes, which are in a play but the Sun and Moon. The darkness took on a demon shape. Andhaka means dark and ignorance as well. Due to ignorance, life becomes dark. The Andhaka-darkness giant was struck by Lord Shiva on his head with a club in his hand. The demon's head began to bleed. Every drop of blood that fell on the earth became a demon, and the war went on. By collecting it in a bowl, Mother Parvathi prevented the blood from falling. 8 vertical and 8 horizontal lines crosswise became the blood that fell down and thus made 64 squares. For each square, Lord Shiva created 64 Bhairavas with His power and prevented further demon production, and blessed the Devas in the celestial world. This was later known to Bhairavas as the Vasthu Shanti Puja. The destruction of ignorance leading to enlightenment is also personified by this.
