Temples And Legends Of Tamilnadu Introduction

Mayavaram, popularly known as the Banaras of the Poor of the South, is a railway Junction in Madras-Tiruchirapalli main line at a distance of 174 miles from Madras Egmore. The beautiful temple of Mayuranatha measures 719 feet by 527 feet and is situated at a distance of about 2 miles from Mayavaram junction. There is an imposing gopuram, 164 feet high adorning the entrance in the east and it has nine storeys.

The legend goes that Daksha did not invite his daughter Parvati. And his son-in-law Lord Siva to the sacrifice he conducted. Being vexed at the disrespectful attitude of Daksha towards him, Lord Siva sent Veerabhadra, a minor deity, to go and desecrate the sacrifice conducted by Daksha. Lord Siva at the same time instructed Parvati Devi not to attend the yaga. However, the Devi attended the yaga, disobeying her Lord's prohibition.
