Chayavaneashwara Temple - The legendary Saga !

The temple near Chennai achieved legendary relevance for its bondage with Iyarpagai Nayanar, one of the sixty-three Nayanmars or Saivite saints of the South. The legend says that the Nayanar used to spend all his wealth for temples, feeding sadhus and other virtuous entreaties.

"It so happened that once an old man approached him with the very absurd request to send his (Nayanars) wife to him as a gift. Without hesitation Iyarpagai Nayanar satisfied the desire of the old man. But this created commotion among his relatives, who never appreciated such a gift. However socially degrading it may be, he insisted upon his wife to follow the sadhu and she did so. The old man transformed into Lord Shiva, praised the Nayanar for his unstinted devotion towards Saivite saints and blessed him with liberation", as the legend reveals!. Lord Shiva tests the profoundness of devotion of his followers and rewards them when they stand the 'test of faith'.
