I make an humble appeal to you for the Contribution of funds to 1000 years old and One of the most ancient temples in South India, located at Coimbatore, Sri Virundheeswarar Temple for the Kumbhabhishekam that will be held on July 11 2019. The funds that are collected will be used for the final stages of this Maha Kumbhabhishekam. Below is the Maha Kumbhabishekam Invitation in Tamil and Temple pictures for your reference.
Address of the Temple:
Sri Arulmigu Virundeeswara Temple,
K Vadamadurai Post
Sthala Puranam (History) of this Temple:
Main deity: Virundheeswarar as a Swayambu lingam with Ambal Viswa Nayaki amman.
Sundarar came here after worshipping Lord Avinashilingeswarar in Avinashi temple, in a fainting state due to acute hunger. A couple treated them with all love with drumstick leaves food. Sundarar regained strength and came to know that the hosts were none other than Lord Shiva and Mother Parvathi. As they hosted (offering virundhu) Sundarar, the Lord is called Virundeeswarar. Virundhu in Tamizh means hosting meal.
While we usually see Lord Nataraja dancing with His long hair flying wide, the Lord dances here with His hair well dressed. He also granted all powers to His vehicle Nandhi in this temple. Following this sanction, other temples began the Adhikara Nandhi practice later. Adhikaram in Tamizh means power.
Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara.
