Another interesting story attached with this temple, Lord Murugan who got married to Devasena, daughter of Indra (God for Heaven), received Iravath as a marriage gift. As Irvath started moving, Murugan noticed that Indra’s wealth started decreasing. Noticing this, Murugan decided to return his gift, for which Indra didn’t not accept.
