Our human life is decided by the good or bad deeds we have done in our previous births.God has given the administrative power to the nine planets(நவ கிரகங்கள் ).Each planet is assigned a specific duty in monitoring our life.Saturn was born to Surya & saya devi.He has done hard penance at Kasi & got the boon of becoming one of the planets.He is assigned the duty of monitoring our life period & our business & job prospects.He follows the rule of dharma very strictly that he allows one to lead a prosperous life & at time to suffer.But all these are temporary only.After some time one's suffering ends & again blessed with normal life.It is human nature to blame Saturn for all of our suffering.Saturn, after called by humans as a malefic planet again does penance seeking Lord Shiva's help to thwart of his infamous name.The place where he did the penance & blessed by Lord Shiva is called "Tirukollikadu".Agni Bhagvan(Deva of fire) has done penance here earlier & Lord Shiva is called Agneeswarar & Goddess as Panjinum melladial(lotus feet softer than cotton). Speciality of the temple: Temple entrance is facing north side.Goddess Mahalaxmi's sanctum is in the northwest & adjacent to her is Saneeswaran.He is holding a plough as that of Deva Kubera who posses & offer wealth to human beings as per the wish of Lord Shiva.North west direction is where Kubera resides & that place is taken by Saneeswaran in this temple.Directly opposite to him in the north east corner is Bhairava Sannidhi Who also function as per Lord Shiva's instruction .He is blessing the humans in overcoming their business rivalry,their debts & also providing healthier life.Worshipping him in descending moon period ashtami thithi would ward off all the short comings in human life provided they follow the path of Dharma.As Saneeswaran is in the direct vision of Bharavar, his malefic effect is reduced. Traditionally in Nava graha sannidhi at Shiva temples,planets face in different directions whereas here they are in Tamil letter "ப " shape as shown in the photo looking at each other.Their casting of bad effects is reduced under the direct control of Shiva.Flow of money is ensured by Goddess Mahalaxmi & Saneeswaran taking Kubera's place.Bhairava thwarts of worries in he human mind.(பணக்கஷ்டமும் ,மனக்கஷ்டமும் சனி பகவானின் சாதகமற்ற சஞ்சாரத்தினால் வரும் ) .This is one of the temple situated on the southern bank of River Cauvery.(காவிரி தென்கரை தலங்கள்) .Temple has been built in Chola king period before 1000 years ago. God Muruga is having a bow in his hand in stead of spear (வேல் ).Sthala virutcham is Vanni.A simple hand drawn sketch is shown in the photo for easy understanding of direction of temple construction.Other photos of the temple are also attached.(Thanks to Dinamalar Newspaper).In addition to Vanni,Umathai & Konrai which is decorating Shiva is also in the temple.Umathai has the medicinal property of healing mental disorders while Bunch of Konrai flowers promotes family unity,which is disturbed during Saturn transition.See our saints & elders are visionaries,they knew the human sufferings very well,it is not necessary for them since they have renounced the worldly activities.They took pity on us & has given such wonderful remedies. This Saneeswarar is also called pongu Saneeswarar(prosperous) .Town buses & minibuses are available from Thiruvarur bus stand. It is 9 kms from Kachanam 4 road bus stop in Thiruvarur -Thiruthurai poondi bus route .You can also reach from Kottur in Mannargudi -Thiruthuraipoondi . As the temple is in a remote village,It is better to have dharshan before 6pm &it is better to engage an auto or taxi for family. From there you can also cover Thirukkuvalai Thyagaraja temple (Saptha vidangar) & famous Ettukudi Murugan(Aaru mugar) temple,Thiruvaymur Thyagaraja temple(Saptha vidangar) &also Velankanni Church ,Nagapattinam(S.Vidangar) . I' ll write about Saptha Vidangar (seven Thyagaraja temples) soon .All these temples are with in 30 kms radius only. Thanks to Dinamalar Newspaper for the photos .
