Legend / Local stories

darshan. After that he came back to Thiruthiyamalai and to his surprise, he met Agasthiar again there and received some more secrets from him. At that time, he saw a huge tree in the middle of the hill with more than 1008 ‘Thookkanakuruvi Koodu’ (Bird Nests).

Though he had done Girivalam so many times before, he never saw that tree before. Thookkanakuruvi Koodu is considered as a good Vasthu symbol and due to the 1008 of them here, this place is considered as a highly powerful Vasthu power Sthalam. From the language of so many birds, he understood that the flower is going to bloom on the next Maha Shivarathri day and so waited in penance at the foot hill. On that eventful Maha Shivarathri day, the Argyadevavalli flower finally bloomed and all the thousands of birds flew in abundant happiness chanting ‘Om Namasivaya’.

Brighu maharishi was slightly upset that he could not see the flower but the birds have already seen it. Agasthiar appeared again with his wife and took Brighu maharishi for the first time to the hilltop (all the time, he was at the foot hill only) and disappeared there. Brighu maharishi finally got the glimpse of the flower as a reflection in the ‘Kodi Pushpa Aadhi Mahamaha Theertham (Sunai)’ and then raised his head and got the direct darshan of the flower.
