Legend and Stories

Nanda Vilakku implies the constant light. Here the perumal stands as Nanda Vilakku giving the Pranava Gyana oli ie "Om" which is the key sound of the entire universe. Ajaykapathan, Aahirputheyar, Binanai, Roodhar, Pithuroopar, Thriyambakar, Maheswarar, Virushakabi, Shambuvahanar, Easwarar all the above 10 are known as Ekadasa Rudhirar. Ajaykapathan was at one time the bearer of Lord Shiva who was having 4 mouths, 1000 shoulders, Karala Vadhanam, ears with shell studs and 100 legs. Aahirputheyan is the child of Maharishi Boothan and Surabi. Binaki was a bow which was framed by Lord Indra.

Once Kanva Maharishi who raised shakuntala was in a profound request to God and was secured by Sand hills. Bamboo trees began to develop on the top and seeing the finest nature of these Bamboo's, Lord Indra made 3 bows out of them. He named the first as Kandibam and kept it for himself. The other one was named Shargam and was given to Lord Narayana and the third one was named Binaki and was given to Lord shiva. Maheswarar has the body and a trimming as Lord Shiva however is of white shading. As Lord Narayana gave his dharsan to Lord Shiva who was gotten from the transgression of slaughtering Lord Brahma. Narayana gave these Ekadasa Rudhirar's, excessively his uncommon dharsan. When holy person Dhurvasan gave a laurel which was utilized as a part of the love of Goddess Lakshmi to Lord Indira. Be that as it may, he took the wreath indiscreetly and put it on his Elephant Iravadham. The festoon was crushed under the feet of this Elephant. The holy person got irate and reviled Lord Indra that all his riches would vanish in the ocean. One day all the Devaas churned the ocean and the following day they got Godess Lakshmi's favors. So that specific day of agitating was named as Ekadasi and the day next as Dhuvadasi. So in the wake of recapturing his riches, Lord Indra got the dharsan of Lord Narayana at this spot. It's been said that in a war between Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu.

Master Shiva throwed his Tirisoolam (his weapon) on Lord vishnu and he took it as his Thiruman (Symbol in his brow) and Lord Vishnu once held Lord Shiva's neck firmly (while he drank the toxic substance which originated from the Thriuparkadal) and the toxin remained there and Lord Shiva was named Neelakandan from that point. By revering Lord Shiva his dark throat takes after Lord Krishna's shading keeping in mind loving Lord Vishnu the Thiruman remains as image for Lord Shiva and in this way these Lords are demanding solidarity among us. Nara Narayanar, is the type of Lord who turned into an understudy himself and an educator himself, instructing Gnana to himself just like an understudy and instructor at the same time. Ruler Naryanan of Manimaada Kovil remains as a light which spreads Gnana to the world and Nara Narayana of Bhadrinath who taught Gnana to himself and subsequently both are proportionate as far as Gnana. The above correlation was made by Thirumangai alwar in his paasuram
