History / Legend:

Lord Shiva as Bikshadana graces in the Mandap as a procession deity. The 12 zodiac signs are drawn on the roof of the mandap. Worshiping Lord Shiva and Lord Bikshadana standing under the zodiac sign would relieve the devotee of all the adverse effects caused by planets, it is believed. Lord Bikshadana also has His place in the prakara-corridor.

In days of yore, the region was a jungle dense with Parai trees from where the Shivalinga was found and the temple built here. Lord was named Paraithurai Nathar. There is a Shivalinga under the Parai tree behind the sanctum sanctorum. It is said that Lord appeared from this place. Mother Pasumpon Mayilambikai and Lord Nataraja grace from their shrines in the prakara facing south. During the Vaikasi (May-June) Brahmmotsavam, Lord Nataraja comes in procession not accompanied by Ambika. The system seems to be different here.

The temple is praised in the hymns of Saints Gananasambandar, Tirunavukkarasar and Arunagiriar. The Cauvery near the temple is revered as Akanda (wide) Cauvery. The river bifurcates at a distance of 2 kms from here as Cauvery and Kollidam. Kadai Muzhukku, a bath in Cauvery at Mayiladuthurai on the last date of Aipasi (October-November) is taken by devotees while the first on the first Aipasi takes place in Paraithurai. It is the firm belief of the devotees that this bathing would cleanse them of their sins. Lord Muruga with His consorts Valli and Deivanai grace the devotees from a shrine in the prakara sung by Saint Arunagiriar while Lord Dandayuthapani wearing sandals graces from a shrine nearby. Those seeking wedding matches worship Varahi, one among the Saptha Kannikas offering abishek and lighting lamps.

The region was once known as Tharukavanam. The sages of the place were too proud that they were supreme in all aspects. Their wives excelled them in pride thinking that they alone were chaste and most beautiful. Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu decided to teach them a lesson. Lord Shiva took the form a handsome beggar Bikshadana while Vishnu appeared with alluring beauty as Mohini. While the Rishis were enticed by the beauty of Mohini and followed Her, the Rishi Patnies (wives) followed the beggar shedding their chastity pride. Seeing their wives following a beggar, the Rishis understood that there was some magic and began to chase the Bikshadana and fought him with all the skills they had but failed and were defeated. They understood that the handsome beggar was none other than Lord Shiva, fell at His feet and begged His pardon. Lord Shiva became their Guru and appeared here as a swayambumurthy.

Lord Paraithurainathar gracefully offers all remedies to all diseases including skin and cancer. Stammering in children is cured. Those facing problems in wedding proposals pray to Mother.

History / Legend:

Saptha Kannikas, the Seven Virgins prayed to Lord Shiva to protect them from the sins caused by killing demon Doomralochana. Lord Shiva is believed to be their security in this place. He also destroyed the demon. Devotees consider Mother Chamundi here as Mother Durga. Hence, there is no special shrine for Mother Durga. Worships to Mother Durga are offered in Shiva shrine itself. Pujas during Rahukala time are performed to Lord Shiva and Mother Durga simultaneously.

Lord Shiva graces as Vamadeva Swyambu (facing north). Cauvery flows in front of the temple. Remembering the occasion of Lord Shiva granting darshan to the Saptha Kannikas, Lord visits Cauvery with Mother Ambica. Also Lords of 7 Shiva temples around the place visit Cauvery the same day, same time. It is a rare opportunity for the devotees to worship 8 Lord Shivas simultaneously. The first part of Aipasi Tula Snanam (bathing in Cauvery in October-November is followed devotionally here with Kalai Kadambar (morning) Sokkar (midday) and Eengoinathar (evening) worships. Morning worship is considered very beneficial with multiple profits including the one of worshiping the Lord in Kasi in north. The place also has the reputation of being called Dakshina Kasi – Kasi of South.

Mother Muttrila Mulai Ammai graces from a shrine facing east. Paramanathar is the guardian deity of this shrine with his hand on the forehead in a saluting form. People perform abishek to Paramanathar with honey and offer porridge made of Pasi corn, praying Him to be a guardian of their houses too.

Lord Muruga worshipped Lord Shiva here for washing off the sin caused by killing of demon Surapanma. He graces from a shrine in the prakara with His consorts Valli and Deivanai with His six faces, described by Saint Arunagiriar as Lord of six military camps attributed to Him. Lord Lingodhbava is on the Sanctum Koshta-wall around the shrine.

There are two Natarajas with Muyalagan under one and one without. Crescent moon shines on the head. Devas of the celestial world appealed to Mother Ambica to protect them from the atrocities of Demon Doomralochana. Mother took the form of Durga and fought with the demon. As his boons were very strong, he fought with equal might with Mother. Mother began to feel weak. Lord Shiva deputed Saptha Kannikas to fight him. The demon could not stand their force and hid himself in the hermitage of Maharshi Kathyayana. The virgins mistook the Rishi as the demon and eliminated him and thus incurred Brahmmahathi dosha – a sin that would make the sinner dark with a gruesome face. As advised by Ambika, they performed penance on Lord Shiva and got relieved of the sin when Lord granted them darshan from the Kadamba tree.

Women believe that Lord Shiva would be their constant protector and submit all their grievances at His feet.

The unboiled milk used for abishek does not go stale till the evening though some dust from the incense sticks fall on the milk. Instead, it becomes a good curd the next morning. This is a miracle that could be seen only in this temple.

A devotee, Vairagya Perumal of Kancheepuram vowed to offer his head to Rathnagireeswarar if he got a child. He kept his promise sooner the wish was achieved. The head came to the peak of the mount while the feet stayed down. Honey and Coconut milk is used for the abishek for this head. The garlands used for the presiding deity is then offered to the head. The other surprise here is, that no crow flies on the hill. Tradition has it that once a crow upset the milk bowl of a devotee and got burnt. From then no crow flies on the hill. The presiding deity is also known as Rajalingam and Valpokki. The shrine is praised in the hymns of Thirunavukkarasar and Arunagiriar Thirupugazh. The abishek water is carried each day from the Cauvery river in the plains, 9 kilometers far. The scriptural names are Iyermalai and Shivayamalai.

History / Legend:

The legend has that Lord Adishesha and Lord Vayu had a heated argument about their superiority. Lord Indra intervened and proclaimed them to prove their strength. The final verdict was followed, Lord Adishesha should carry the Mount Meru with his thousand heads and Lord Vayu should tear apart the Mount Meru with his strength. Lord Vayu with all his strength blew off Mount Meru, as a result it’s divided into five parts and each part was fallen as precious Gems such as Emerald, Ruby, Diamond, Coral and Sapphire on the different places of the Earth. These sacred lands were turned out prominent worship places of Lord Shiva. The places where Coral landed on Earth came to known as Thiruvannamalai, Ruby landed as Ratnagiri, Emerald as Inkoi Malai, Bule Saphhire as Pothikai and Diamond landed as Kodumudi. Hence, the self-manifested Linga on this sacred land came to known as Kodumudinathar/Makudeswarar. Thus, Ratnagiri hill and the presiding deity Lord Ratnagirinathar were originated during this mighty process.

Iyermalai is one of the peaks of Meru Mount. The Linga is a Jyothir Linga. Also Swayambu.. The prayers begin at Kadambar temple on the banks of Cauvery, proceeds to Rathnagireeswarar in Iyermalai and ends in the Thiru Engoimalainathar temple. The abishek water is stored in a big bowl called Kopparai. Once it so happened that the Kopparai did not become full though people went on pouring the Cauvery water. The angry king took the sword and threw it on the Linga which began to bleed. The king reconciling from the fury fell at the feet of Lord, who in turn pardoned him and also offered precious stone. The scar is still visible on the Linga.

The crowd would be too huge for 15 days during the Chithirai Festival and on Mondays of the Karthikai month, especially on the 3rd and 4th Mondays touching two lakhs. Devotees go up rolling. During Pradosham days, transition of Guru (Jupiter) and Saturn and Poornima (full moon day), week end days, Tamil months 1st. day the crowd will be huge for Girivalam (around the mount).
