Temples And Legends Of Tamilnadu Introduction

About three miles from Kumbakonam and two from Dharasuram, in Tanjore District, there is a famous Siva temple known as Saktimuttam.

'The Goddess is known as Peria Nayagi and the God Sivakozhunteeswarar. The legend goes to say that Peria Nayagi was in penance at this temple for getting the pleasure of embracing and kissing the Lord. When pleased with the penance of Peria Nayagi, Siva appeared and wanted to know what Peria Nayagi desired. When she expressed her desire, God soon disappeared, and again reappeared in the form of a terrifying fire.

Author : Shri R. K. Das
