Nava Kailasam Temples History

As per the Legend, During the Lord Siva and Paravati Devi Wedding, sages started gathering at Mount Kailash. Due to the mass gathering, the North region went down and the South region moved up. To balance the Earth, Lord Siva asked Sage Agasthya to stay at South so that it can be balanced. Sage Romasa disciple of Sage Agasthya expressed his wish to install Siva Lingas at this place. Sage Agasthya asked him to leave 9 Lotus flowers in the river Thamirabarani and install Siva Linga at the place where the Lotus touches the bank. Hence, Nine Siva Lingas were installed at Nine different Places by Sage Romasa as instructed by his master.
