The Lord agreed and left to the Kanchi shrine and created holy water in front of Veerattakasam using his chakra weapon. He took bath in Chakra Theertham every day and worshipped Veerattakasar with 14,000 lotus flowers.Lord Shiva, who was delighted, appeared with Uma Devi and granted His wish to change his complexion from dark color to golden color.
