Guduvanchery – What Lord Siva has to do with this place?



If you are wondering, what is the connection between Guduvanchery and Lord Shiva – keep your eyes glued and continue reading.
As per mythological story on Lord Siva, Devas and Asuras were churning the ocean (parkadal)  to drink amrutham for restoring their strength, energy and fortune, using Vasuki, the snake. During the process, vasuki emitted poisonous fumes, which Lord Siva protected the Devas by consuming the poison and helped them to drink pot of Amrutha. After drinking amrutha, Devas were dancing, singling and enjoying and forget siva, who is the reason for them to be alive.
At one point, Devas realized their mistake, prayed Siva to forgive. Siva forgive them and danced in the middle of his vehicle, Nandi’s – bull horns. Thats how Lord Siva got his name as Nandeeswarar. Nandivaram – Guduvanchery, got its name because the famous Nandeeswarar Siva temple is situated right here.
Now lets quickly know about why Guduvanchery is a hottest place, for properties!
