  1. Veerava Nallore:


    The temple is about 7 kms from Kallidai Kuruchi.






    Main deity is Swayambu Lingam known as Bhoominadhar and Maragadha valli Amman.



    Sthala Vruksham is Punga, and teertham Gyana teertham.
    Other deities seen in the temple are Kanni Vinayakar, Murugan, 63 Nayanmars, Sooryan, Vairavar, Saraswathy, Saptha Kanniyar, Kasi Viswanadhar, and Navagraha sanctums.



    Purana says Lord Siva punished Yama for the sake of Markandeya, who prayed for help. Yama turned into a creeper by Lord Siva’s curse; he stayed here in this temple and worshipped Lord Siva. Since Yama was not able to do his work and there were no death taking place. Due to this Bhoodevi was burdened with weight, and she worshipped Lord Siva in this place and she was blessed. After this yama was also blessed by Siva and started doing his work. Since Bhoodevi Worshipped Lord Siva here he is known as Bhoomi Nadhar.



    Agystiyar, Dharma, Nakula, Brahma, Vishnu, Kanaka muni, Bargava Muni and Ganga worshipped Lord Siva and were blessed
