The Vinayaka of this place blesses the devotees in the name ‘Sundara Ganapathi’. Lord Muruga in the holy places, Ettukkudi, Enkan and Sikkal are alike in structure and so it is said, that these three images are sculpted by the same sculptor.  On the North-western corner of the temple is a separate sanctum for Aanjaneyar.

 Greatness Of Temple:
     
 

Kolavaamana Perumal   :   Once the devas complained about the troubles caused by Mahabali Chakravarthi of the asura clan.  So when Lord Vishnu took Vaamana avatar, it is believed that He came to this sacred place, worshipped Lord Siva and got power to annihilate Mahabali.  Hence, Lord Vishnu of this place blesses the devotees with the sacred name ‘Kolavaamana Perumal’ from a separate sanctum.

 

This is one of the 64 Sakthi Peetams of Amman.  Viswaamitrar, Kaarthiyaayanar, Naaradar, Muchukunta Chakravarthi have worshipped in this holy place.  The four deities Lord Siva, Perumal, Murugan and Hanuman offering benedictions is a significant aspect of this temple.  Arunagirinaathar has sung ‘Tiruppugazh’ celebrating Lord Muruga of this place. This is one of the 72 canopied temples built by Kochenkat Cholan.  The devaas worshipped Lord Muruga by offering Him ‘tirisathai’ to protect their selves from the onslaught of Soorapadman.  Hence, Lord Muruga put an end to Soorapadman and saved the devaas.  The belief is that by offering the ‘satru samhaara tiri sathai’ prayer to Lord Muruga, we will be relieved of enemies’ attack and reap benefits, since Amman has bestowed Her shakthi in the form of a Spear to Singaara Velan of this place.

 
     
  Temple History:
     
 

The legend says that during a famine, the divine Kamadhenu of the heavenly abode had consumed meat and Lord Siva knowing this cursed the cow to become a tiger.  The sorrow-stricken tiger asked pardon to the Lord.  The kind-hearted Lord told the tiger, “Take bath in the holy place Mallikaaranyam on the earth, offer your prayers to the Lord there and then you will be relieved of your curse.”  Accordingly, Kamadhenu came to this place, built a pond and when she took bath, milk from her udders flowed and the whole pond became a milk-pond. From this milk-pond gathered butter.  As per the direction of Lord Siva, Sage Vasishta came to this sacred place, created a Lingam from the butter and worshipped.  It was a problem to remove this Lingam from this place. So, the place came to be known as ‘Sikkal’. (In Tamil the term means ‘problem’)
