  Lord Veerabadra appears with 8 hands holding weapons, a form called Rudra Palaka. He is wearing Rudraksha Mala. Daksha with his goat head is near Veerabadra being killed by the Lord under His feet. The idol is so live showing Veerabadra’s trident piercing Daksha’s neck. In one hand, He is holding a Deva attending the yaga to get the Havirbaga and a bell in the other hand used in the yaga puja.

  Majority of the devotees pray here for relief in wedding problems and for solutions in land disputes.

  Devotees offer betel leaf garland and sweet pudding nivedhana to Lord. 
 Greatness Of Temple:
  People facing disputes in land matters, fall in farm yields and buildings standing half-built due to some reasons, come to Lord Veerabadra for solutions.  As Mars (Sevvai in Tamil) is the authority in land matters, they bring a little sand from their lands, place it before the Lord and take it back as Prasad and spill it on their land or building.  Then they offer Kesari nivedhana with garlands of betel, vilwa and lime fruits.  Those unable to identify their family deity, consider Lord Veerabadra as their family deity.  Vilwa is the sacred tree of the place.  
  Temple History:
  Malayadwaja Pandya was sad that he had no child.  His queen wife Kanachanamala was a staunch devotee of Mother Parvathi.  Rewarding her devotion, Mother Parvathi was born to her as Meenakshi.  She won many kings in battles.  When she reached Kailash to complete Her victory, She met Lord Shiva and understood that He would be Her Lord.
Lord Shiva came down to Madurai to wed Mother Meenakshi along with huge number of Maharshis, Gods Siddhas and a legion of Devas.  He appointed Muniswaran, Jatamuni and others as securities at different directions.  Veerabadra headed the group on the southern side.
A group of Veerabadra devotees came to Madurai from Karnataka.  They installed Veerabadra idol here and built the temple.
