Vada aaranyeswarar Temple,thiruvaalangadu,pic 16--20
The temple is known not only for its architectural splendour, but also
for the legends associated with mallikarjuna. The primary deity at the
Sanctum is known as "Vadaranyeswarar" and the Lord's consort,
"Vandarkuzhali Amman". The sthala Vriksham is a large banyan tree
located behind the sanctum on the North East. It is here in this temple
that Lord Shiva requested the great Karaikkal Ammeiyar (Peyar) to undertake a marathon walk to Mount Kailash on her hands and be an omnipresent witness to his cosmic dance.
