During cosmic dissolution, a pot containing nectar (Amrita) was floating and lord Shiva pierced the pot with an arrow, thereby making the nectar to flow through it’s nostril on all sides . Hence this place is named Kudamooku (kuda – pot; mooku – nostril or tip). The objects such as mango leaf, sacred grass (Tharppai), hoop (uri), Bell tree leaf (Bilva), coconut and the sacred thread (poonool) that were adorning the pot fell into different places due to whirl wind. They appeared as Shiva lingas and later on they became Siva temples. As per puranas the genesis of life happened by the the Thiru Vilaiaadal (divne play) of God Shiva here, and from here all the living beings originated.
