Moolavar is Pavalavannan seen in standing posture facing west. There
is a sannadhi opposite this sannadhi about 2 furlong away. The Moolavar
here is Pachaivannan seen seated on Aadiseshan. The two sannadhis
together are considered as one divyadesam.
It is said that both the Pacchai and Pavala Vannan perumal has to
be worshipped, without leaving any one of them. Opposite to Pavala
Vannar Sannadhi, 2 1/4 kms away is the Pacchai Vannar Sannadhi is
situated in west direction. Inspite of the Mangalasasanam not done
in Pacchai Vannar sannadhi, both these two temples are considerded
to be the single and has to be worshipped as a single Divya desam.
Pacchai vannar, who is also called as "Maragatha vannar"
explains in this sthalam that he is the hamsam of Lord Shiva and
Pavala Vannar as the hamsam of Para sakthi. So it is said that by
worshipping these two sthalams at the same time, we worship both
Lord Shivan and Parashakti.
