    Legends

     

    Legends state that Madurai Veeran was born to a king but was abandoned by him because he considered the child as a curse and bad luck. Madurai Veeran was then found by a woodcutter who adopted the child and raised him like his own son with love and affection. Madurai Veeran was a great devotee of Devi and had expertise in various skills of martial arts, archery, and many shastras. He was a man of great courage and valor. During that time the city of Madurai was going under the crisis of being robbed by thieves almost continuously. The thieves and bandits belonged to the Kallarcommunity. The king of Madurai, ThirumalaiNayak, came to know about the skills and valor of Madurai Veeran and appointed him the task of getting rid of the thieves and bandits. He made him the general of his army.

     

    At around the same time Madurai Veeran met Vellaiyammalwho was a royal ballerina in the kingdom of Madurai. She was impressed by the charm, skills and expertise of Madurai Veeran and was very attracted to him. She asked him to teach her the Natya Shastra. Madurai Veeran agreed to do so. However, the closeness between the two was not liked by ThirumalaiNayak as he liked Vellaiyammal and wanted to marry her. The generals and ministers of Madurai hated Madurai Veeran because of his closeness to the king. Taking advantage of the situation, they tried to plot against Madurai Veeran by convincing the king that there had been delays in the capturing of the thieves and bandits because Madurai Veeran was himself a thief and was on the side of the Kallar community. The king, who had already started hating Madurai Veeran, ordered his men to cut off one hand and one leg of Madurai Veeran and to deliver the death of a traitor to Madurai Veeran. Madurai Veeran earlier received a vision from Devi and accepted his death. This news was received by Vellaiyammal and another woman named Bommi. They hurriedly went towards the gallows where Madurai Veeran was about to be executed. However, when they reached there, Madurai Veeran had already been punished by the king and they found only limbs of Madurai Veeran. It is believed that by the purity and virtuousness of Vellaiyammal and Bommi, Devi brought Madurai Veeran back to life. The king then realized his fault and apologized to the deity. After that Madurai Veeran left the kingdom and went to a cave. It is believed that the king then installed a shrine of Madurai Veeran and built a temple for the god there.
