Behind Muthu Aiyanar temple is the Samadhi sthal of great Siddha Shri Azhagar Siddhar. The Samadhi has been raised over a well there. Though people say that the Siddha had come to this village before 400 years or so and stayed there till death, some others feel that he lived during 1800 AD to 1840 AD. While he stayed in the Village he cured the ailments of many people with his mystic powers. In the samadhi temple one can see bunch of prayer letters tied to a sword by the visiting devotees who seek his favor to get their wishes fulfilled.
The general procedure to offer prayer to this Siddha is very simple. The wishes are to be written on a piece of white paper and after praying the Siddha Purush, the letter is tied on the sword held in his right hand. The wish list includes purchase of Car, higher education to children, selection in interviews and exams, beget children etc. Once their prayers are fulfilled, they have to visit the temple again to place in the temple precincts a small idol, resembling them to symbolically thanking him for the favor they got from him. A female installs a female doll and male a male, a doll and when wishes for the children are fulfilled the idol of a child is offered. Thus the temple complex is filled fully with idols and statues moulded out of cement and clay in several shapes and sizes.
The devotees claim that if the prayers are sincere are sure to be fulfilled by the power of Shri Azhagar Siddhar and therefore every year during the Tamil calendar month of Chiththirai which is mid-April to mid-May, the devotees throng this temple to take part in the annual festival held in the memory of the Siddha and paint the idols and statues with multi colours as part of their service to the temple festival. The unique feature in the festival is the music concert by 200 artists (100 for Nathaswaram and 100 for Thavil) who simultaneously play musical instruments like Nathaswaram and Thavil in chorus.
The life style of the Siddha was simple and strange. Sometimes he would wake up and walk around the forest, but never spoke to anyone and maintained total silence. Few have seen him getting into the well and sitting in meditation for hours. Many a times some villagers have also seen several snakes moving around his body while he was sleeping under the tree as he used to sleep below the sprawling banyan tree nearby during night time. As days passed, people tried to persuade him to come and stay in their Village, but he would politely refuse to go with them telling that the place near the well where he slept or sat was only his home. But slowly whenever the villagers were afflicted with some ailments or bites of poisonous creatures or fear psychosis on account of evil spirits and ghosts, he would gave them some ash and their problems would vanish in few minutes. Thus his fame spread far and wide in the surrounding villages by word of mouth stories.
When he decided to take Samadhi, he did not let his intention known to anyone and called the villagers to join him in a Puja which he proposed to hold for the welfare of the village. It was Monday. When everyone came, he asked them to follow him and walked some distance around the village with band of music. As he reached the well site where he used to sit in tapas, he asked them to stay at a distance and got into the well to offer worship. Even after several hours when the Siddhar did not come out, panicked villagers rushed to the well to see what was happening inside. They were shocked to find him not inside and thought he may have drowned in water inside the well and died and therefore sent few villagers down into the well to search for him. Alas, the Sridhar’s body was not to be found inside and no trace of him was also there. However few in the crowd had seen a flash of light travelling towards the sky from inside the well.
