Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Viratteswara Temple is a Hindu temple situated in the village of Vazhuvur, 5 miles south-west of Mayiladuthurai, Tamil Nadu, India. The principal deity is the Hindu god Shiva. According to Hindu mythology, once, some sages doubting the omnipotence of the god Shiva created an elephant and challenged the god to a duel. Shiva took the form of Gajasamharamurti or "slayer of the elephant" and killed the elephant and wore its skin as a garment. Therefore, this aspect of Shiva is also known as "Kirthivasa" or "one who wears an elephant skin as garment".Vazhuvur is also one of the places where Siva danced his cosmic dance to crush the demon of ignorance.
