Poyyamozhi Swayambu Vinayagar, Theevanur

Apepper merchant on his way to the shandy stayed in the temple for a night. The temple servants asked the trader to offer a little quantity of pepper for preparing Nivedhana for the Lord. He said that he had no stock of pepper and what was in the bag was Ulund dal. When he went to shandy and unpacked the bundle, there was dal only. The shocked merchant came to the temple and placed his dal before the Lord and begged His pardon. It became pepper again. Since then, Nerkuthi Vinayaka came to be known as Poyyamozhi Vinayaka, meaning that the Lord would not allow falsehood. Vinayaka in Linga form: Lord Vinayaka is in the form of Linga. His form would be visible only through abisheks in milk. There are three banyan trees behind the temple without the hanging stems called vizhudhu in Tamil representing three Murthis – Brahmma, Vishnu and Shiva. Those seeking wedding knot and child boon go round these threes. Pujas are performed to the trees daily.

Some shepherds of the region used to pick up paddy pads from fields, pound them with stone and used it to cook their food. One day, when they sought for a stone, they got one that looked as the head of an elephant. They thought that would not help them to get the rice and left it there seeking another one. When they returned, they saw the paddy pound, the husk and the waste separated and placed properly.
