tiruthani

LORD MURUGA'S FIFTH ABODE : THIRUTHANI Indra the king of the Gods gave his daughter Deivayanai in marriage to Skanda, and along with her presented his elephant Airavatam as part of his dowry offering. Upon Airavatam's departure Indra found his wealth waning. Subramanyar is said to have offered to return the white elephant, however Indra bound by protocol refused to accept a gift that he had made, and insisted that the elephant face his direction, hence the image of the elephant in this temple also faces the east. On worshipping our Lord at Thanikai, the king of snakes Vasuki got his bodily wounds healed, which had been caused during the churning process in the Milky Ocean to secure the Amrita by the devas and asuras when the Mantotra mountain was used as the churning base and the snake king Vasuki as the rope. Sage Agasthyar Muni worshipped Lord Muruga at Tanikai when he was blessed with the divine gift of the Tamil language.
