Thiruchendur Murugan Temple – Vadanaramba Theertham

Thiruchendur Murugan Temple – Vadanaramba Theertham
This Theertham is in the sea just opposite to Moolavar. It is said Bhrama took bath here to get back his lost head. Kanagasundari, daughter of Kalingan was born with horse face due to a curse. This king could not bring normal human face to his daughter in spite of performing many austerities. Then he came to this place and took bath in this Theertham and his daughter got normal human face.
As a memory of this incident, one horse face statue is in the Veiyulu Kandamman Temple in this town.  Since the sea is very rocky in the Theertham area, now we cannot take bath here.
