  • Evening PM — PM. Temple History : Arulmigu Seshapureeswara temple is the most ancient and powerful temple located at Tirupamburam in Tiruvarur district of Tamilnadu. Lord here is Swaymabumurthy in the temple. This is the most ancient temple in this region, where the temple belongs to AD. Rahu and Ketu are not separate but in one body praying to Lord Shiva.

    As divine serpent lost his poison power due to Lord Shiva;s curse prayed here and got back the power. Hence, it is believed that people who had lost anything valuable in their life will get it back by praying to Lord Shiva here. It is said that snakes may be sighted in the temple on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays as they would be worshipping the Lord these days, according to belief.

    This temple has the combined reputation of the temples of Tirunageswaram, Nagoor, Keelperumpallam, Kalahasthi and Kumbakonam. This is a remedial temple-Parihara Sthalam- for all adverse planetary aspects, according to Puranas.

    It is also noteworthy that Rahu and Ketu are not individually separate from each other as in other temples, but are in one single body with Lord in their mind. Those worshipping Lord and Mother together as one entity-Shivashakti-in this temple are assured of all benefits and peace in life.

    Angry Shiva cursed the whole snake community that it should lose its power-viz. All the Ashtama serpents-eight great serpents- appealed to Lord Shiva that it was not fair on His part to curse the whole community for the wrong committed by a single one and they also sought pardon for the snake that grew proud. The place has one more history too. In a tough fight to decide their prowess, Vayu broke mountains with all his power.

    But Adisesha checked Vayu by preventing them from going to pieces. Angry Vayu stopped the supply of oxygen to lives threatening their end. He came to Tirupamburam, worshiped Lord Shiva seeking His pardon.

In legends too, he is described as a lame person. The Sun begot Yama through his first wife Samja. In quarrel between Yama and Sani, the latter suffered an injury resulting in this deformity.

There are two separate sanctums, one for Darbavanyesvara and the other for Saturn. The main deity is a Vidangan. It is a natural rock, and is known as Maragatha Lingam.

    It never moved further. I moved the torch around the dog and could see a cobra carrying a mice in its mouth, moving along the road. It was about 8 or 9 feet long. Though it was a small shock, I realized how dangerous it would have been had I moved in front some two minutes ahead or if the dog had not alerted me on time. I would have been in great trouble if the cobra turns my way or even if it turns its course towards the dog, and if the dog bites it or whatever, I will be in serious trouble.

    Though I had the Jeeva Nadi at hand, I am a mere human and who will bear these sort of trouble?

The black dog which accompanied me as a guide so far was not to be seen as soon as I reached the Ayyanar statue. I searched for it for full ten minutes but it could not be seen anywhere! I was sweating profusely. As a matter of fact, I was standing like dressing up right after taking bath without drying.

    As it would take another 3 hours for the bus to come, I prayed to Agastya Muni and opened the Jeeva Nadi.
