Sri Jwaraharaeshwarar – Vaitheeswaran kovil

Jwaraharaeshwarar

There was always enmity between the ’Devas’ and ‘Asuras’. Once Sukracharia sent an Asura named ‘Kriththasura’ to destroy the ‘Devas’. Kriththasura also tries to trouble the Devas but in vain. So he decides to trouble the people in the earth. He creates diseases like fever and troubles the people.

The distressed people prayed to Lord Siva to save them. Lord Siva sends his “bootha Ganas” to help the people. But Kriththasura, in turn, defeats the “ganas” of Lord Siva. So Lord Siva and Trimoorthi’s  take a single form with three faces, three legs, three hands, three eyes. He holds Agni(fire) in one hand, ‘Thandam’ (stick) on one hand and blesses with the other hand. The Lord destroys all the poisonous diseases and blesses the people, and hence is known as “Jwaraharaeswarar”( the one who kills fever).

This sanctum of Sri Jwaraharaeswarar is located in Vaitheeswaran temple in Tanjore District, Tamil Nadu.

Reciting the below slogam 11 times and praying to Lord Sri  Jwaraharaeswarar, helps us get cured from fever, insect bites, and all disease.
