TIRUKKAZHUKKUNRAM

In many temples in the South big size Valampiri chanks are kept under double locks in the treasury. It is considered as most auspicious even to have a look at the chank. A kind of buzzing sound is always heard from the chank, which is worshipped. It is believed also that the water preserved in the chank overnight after performing the purificatory rites gets the property to heal diseases, and continued use of such water for a period has medicinal effects of curing otherwise incurable diseases.

An interesting story about this place is worth mentioning. Once Vishnu visited Lord Siva at Mount Kailas, leaving his servant Garuda to the care of Nandi. Garuda spoke slightingly of Siva to Nandi, who would not tolerate the insult of his master. The breath of Nandi in anger was of such force that Garuda found he in danger and cried for help. On hearing the cry Lord Vishnu came out and requested Siva to intervene and prevent Nandi from doing any harm to Garuda.
