  Temple History:
  Sages in the Tharukavanam were proud that only their Yajnas help Devas to exist.  Lord Shiva decided to teach a lesson to them and nip their pride.  He entered their region as Bikshadana with a bow seeking alms.  Lord Vishnu joined as Mohini the alluring woman.  Seeing Mohini, the sages simply stopped the yajna half way and began following Mohini.  The wives of Rishis lost their mental balance and began following the handsome Shiva.  The Rishis recovered from the illusion and not knowing the stranger was but Lord Shiva, sent Agni, tiger, deer, snakes and a battle axe called Mazhu.  Lord Shiva defeated and made them His ornaments.  Blind of pride, the Rishis sent a wild elephant to kill Him.  The elephant was killed.  Lord Shiva appeared before the Rishis as Gaja (elephant) Samhara (killing) Murthy (God).  Shedding their pride, the sages fell at Lord’s feet and sought His pardon.  Sastha was born to Bikshadana Shiva and Mohini Vishnu.  For his safety and upbringing Lord Shiva appointed Veerabadra as a guardian.  Both Veerabadra and Bala Sastha grace devotees in this temple.
