Thirukalukundram Temple Sangu Theertha Kulam

     Sage Markandeyar Visited in this Thirukalukundram Vedhagiriswarar Temple, he performed his puja on the banks of Sangu theertham tank.Finding no conch to perform the Abishekam, and having none with him, he created one by his Yogic power and took it form the waters of Sangu theertham tank. The place where he performed this SANGU PUJA is now marked by a shirne, the deity of which is known as Markandesvara or Tirtesvara. They say that Markandeya, when leaving this place, prayed that conch shells,similar to the one he had created, might be found in the Sangu theertham tank so as to be usefull to other Worshippers. Conch shells are sometime seen Floating in the Sangu theertham tank and are collected. The occasions on which they were gathered were July 18 1908,June 26 1919,1939, 1952, 1976,1988, 1999,And Auguest 2011.

     It is belived that, once in twele years,there is a meeting of the Goddnesses of the chief rivers of India at this tank,and in conformity which this belief, a festival known as the SANGU THEERTHA PUSHKARAM is celebrated in this Thirukalukundram Temple.

The Ganga Rivers are the watershed in the sanctum sanctorum

      The cause of such a meeting is thus explained. Once when the Godesses of Ganga, Bhogavati, Yamuna, Godavari, Kaveri river , Kalindi river, Saraswathi river, Vaithali river, Gautam river, Kambai river, Pinagi river, Pampai river, Komukai river, Ponmudi river, southwest river, Devaki river, Singai river, Kandagai river, Vairavarathi River, Brahmi river, Pali River , River Nadi, Chola River, Indus River, Soma River, Ambai River, Indrapuri River, Kaveri River, Urada River, Sarayu River, Vaigai River, Manimutta River met the quetion was raised which amongst them superior and should be honoured most by the king ot the Ocean (Samuthira Raja) their husband. bHe could not answer them, and so he appealed to shiva. Shiva addressed the assembled Goddesses at Koilingeswra (Godavari) and graciously informed them that oif all the SANGU THEERTHA, and that if they all bathed in this pond at the moment of the passing of BRIHASPATI (Jupiter) from Simaha Rasi (LEO) to Kanya Raasi(VIRGO) once in every Twele Years, they would be equally esteemed by the Samuthira Raja. In Pursuance of this advice, these river Godesses meet there at the time of tha SANGUTHEERTHA PUSHKARAM and bless those belivers who partake in the bath.

      The tank which excels all these in sanctity is sakgu theertham which lies at end of the road starting from the eastern entrancs of the bakthavatchala temple.It measures 560 feet by 760 feet.facing this tank is a Vinayaka Shirne and in the center of the tank is a beautiful mandapam.The tank gets its supply of water mastly from the streams that flow down from the Thirukalukundram hill, and itnis said that the water possesses curative powers.
