Sage Vyasa once had to face a curse from Nandideva, vehicle of Lord Shiva.  As advised by Lord Vishnu, he prayed to Lord Shiva and got relieved of the curse.  He also installed a Shivalinga in the temple known as Vyasa Linga. King of Vangadesa – now Bengal – worshipped Lord Shiva here for curing his wife Gandhimathi suffering from a prolonged illness, as advised by Sage Soodha.  He also did some renovations in the temple.  He was blessed with children too.  Laziness will vanish from those praying to Mother Somakalambal who also blesses devotees with an attractive appearance.


Devotees pray to Mother for relief from laziness and to become active in life.

  Temple History:
  The nectar pot placed by Lord Brahmma was floating in the disastrous flood destroying the world.  Lord Shiva came to this place as a hunter, shot an arrow and broke the pot.  The place came to be known as Panathurai named after this story.  The nectar in the pot overflowed wide and deep and made the Mahamaha tank. Those praying to Lord in this place would be blessed with longevity and fame in life.  They derive the benefit of drinking the very nectar itself.

  Miracle Based: This is the place where Lord Shiva broke the nectar pot floating on the destructive floods – Pralaya.
