A fragrant oil (Sambirani thailam) is applied on the Shivalinga.
As the Shivalinga is too small, a cup is placed upside down to facilitate darshan. Abishek is performed to this cup only. The place is also considered the holy place where sage Parasurama worshipped Lord Shiva to repent for his sin of killing his own mother.
The tank he created here is known as Parasurama tank. People pray here for union with their separated life partners and release from serious sins.
As a custom, Gajalakshmi may be seen in the west entrance of Shiva temples. In the Alandurayar temple, Parasurama is seen in a lying form.
In a playful mood, Mother Parvathi covered the eyes of Lord Shiva with her hands. As the eyes of Lord Shiva are Sun and Moon, the world became dark suddenly.
The activities of the world came to a standstill. All the sages and Devas were confused not knowing what to do.
Lord Shiva told Parvathi that even playful acts, if caused hardship to others, was but a sin and asked her to leave him for earth and perform penance. The Lord also assured that He would come and join Her in the Yogavanam here.
Mother Parvathi completed Her penance, made a Linga in sand and worshipped Him standing by one leg. Lord came here and took His consort. This Yogavana is now named Kilapazhuvur. As Mother Parvathi performed Thavam (penance) here, She is called Arundhavanayaki.
