killed Virudhasuran, worshipped Lord Thiruvengadar & was absolved of his
Sage Durvasar gifted a mala to Indran. Indran,
in his vanity threw it on his white elephant Iravadam which stamped the mala
under its feet. Durvasar cursed Indran to turn into a wild elephant. Indran
realising his folly formed a tank (Thadagam) in Thiruvengadu and worshipped
a Siva Linga. He was blessed by Lord Siva and absolved of his sins and
reached Indralogam again.

food in the hollow of a tree. A snake residing in the hollow, spewed poison

died of the poison. This brahmin was absolved of his Brahmahathi Dosham by
worshipping Lord Siva of Thiruvengadu.
Suwedakedu on realising that he was destined
to die in his eighth year, reached Thiruvengadu and performed Siva pooja. As
