Main Deity : Ayyanar.

Ambal : Pooranadevi, Pushkaladevi.

Prominence of the shrine : To destroy the ego of Maharishi’s lived in Tharukavanam, Shiva took the form of Pitchadanar and Vishnu  as Mohini.  Lord Shiva went to Maharishi’s place and asked for alm from their wives.  Looking at Lord Shiva in the form of Pitchadanar,  Maharishi’s wives mind got glitched.  In the same way, Mohini went to Maharishi’s place where yagna was performed and glitched  them.  So the yagna was disrupted.  At that time, Lord Shiva fell in love with Mohini and so Ayyanar was born by the side of river bed.   He is also called as Sasta.

Ayyanar was born in the Tamil month of “Masi”, one day before Ammavasa (New Moon) on Shivarathiri.  Ayyanar has two wives, Pooranadevi and Pushkaladevi, Ayyanar was originated from heaven but was born on earth.  So Pushkaladevi who was from heaven and  Pooranadevi who was from earth were his wives.
