History of Temple

Among the 8 Avatharams of Lord Shiva this is the 8th Avataram. It was told in history that Devas and Asuras  found the Amirtham at Thiruparkadal while they tried to segregate the Amirtham between them they forgot to worship the First and Foremost God of Hindus Lord Ganesh . For this reason Lord Ganesh got angry and hided the Amirtha kalasam at this temple. Various poojas are performed at Tirukadaiyur temple.

Later  the Amirtha kalasam become  SIVALINGAM in this temple. Hence this temple deity was briefly known as AMIRTHAKADESWARAR (Amirtham + Kadam). For this sort of incident from Lord Ganesh the temple has an independent sannidhi for Lord Ganesh as referred to as KALLAVINAYAKAR.
