Veerabhadra Swamy Temple
Kumbakonam,Tanjore District

 

 

 

 

Main Deity : Veerabhadra Swamy.

Prominence of the shrine : Veerabhadran was believed to be born from the braid and sweat of Lord  Shiva.  But people believe that he is from Shiva’s generation.  Veerabhadra’s divine purpose is to kill  those who delinquent charity and those who don’t believe in God.  As how Narashimaha Avatar for  Vaishnavas, Veerabhadra Avatar for Saivas.  

Veerabhadran seems to be  aggressive outside but he is cool-minded inside.  This is proved by the  creatures which live in his body.   Scorpions which lives in cold place is used by him as garland.  Spiders and 14 snakes are used as  ornaments in his body.  This appearance when combined with  nature appears to be divine and reflection  of cold.

Prowess is considered to be in different forms.  The big prowess is winning himself.  On Tuesdays, in  Bharani Nankashatra and Ashtami Thithi, special poojas will be conducted for Veerabhadran.   Veerabhadran is worshipped by using basil flowers and wrapping him with butter.
