Religious Significance

The legend goes that Lord Brahma once cursed mother Saraswathi to lose her sense of speech. Saraswathi came to Earth and reached Sringeri and began to meditate. Lord Brahma went in search of her and finally found her in Sringeri, convinced her and took her back to heaven. While going back they reached this temple on the Northern belt of river Palar, stayed and worshipped Lord Shiva here. Lord Shiva pleased on her worship and gave back her speech. On getting back the speech mother Saraswathi sang here. Hence this place was called as Vaniyambadi. The temple was built in 1000 years ago.
