Kshetra Suggested for Bhima Rath Shanti
Thirukadaiyur For Bhimaratha Shanthi
Thirukadaiyur is a small temple town along the East Coast of Tamil Nadu. It is about 12km from Mayiladuthurai and 24km from Karaikkal. The shortest route to Thirukadaiyur is via Mayiladuthurai. Many visit Thirukadaiyur Sri Amirthakadeshwarar sametha Abirami Amman Temple seeking blessings of the divine couple. This temple was constructed in Chola regime in the 11th Century CE.
This is the place many old couples perform Pujas and Homam. Amritakadeshwarar – Abirami Temple of Thirukadaiyur is associated with the legends of Markandeya. It is believed that the Shiva Lingam in this temple is made of Amrita Ghatam (Pot with Elixir). It is considered very auspicious to perform Bhima Ratha Shanti.
Markandeya, son of sage Mrikandu was predicted to live for only 16 years. As advised by his father, Markandeya worshipped Amritakadeshwarar in Thirukadaiyur, bringing the water from Ganges through an underground passage to the temple. On the destined day, Yama appeared with his noose (Paasham). Markandeya sought refuge in the Lord and embraced the Siva Lingam. The Lord warned Yama not to touch Markandeya as he was under his protection. Yama did not listen and threw the noose that bound Markandeya and the Lingam together. Angered by this act of rashness, the Lord kicked him with the left leg and held him under his left foot, making him inactive. Markandeya was thus saved by Lord Shiva and given the Abhaya from the Lord of Death.
