Myths of Kutralam is a fall

Based on Hindu mythology according to Hindu mythology, during the marriage between God Shiva with Goddess Parvati, there was a huge crowd at Kailash the home of Lord Shiva.

Sage Agastya did not have the opportunity to view the event but asked Lord Shiva in this location to observe the ceremony. Lord Shiva declared that he would perform darshan to the people of Kutralam.

The gatekeepers would not let Augustus enter, initially, it was a Vishnu temple. By his magic, the god changed Vishnu into Shiva, and the conch turned a to deer, into tulsi to the meniscus. Agastya applied pressure to Vishnu's forehead until it was transformed into an imitation of Lingam Shiva.

Because of the intense stress,  Lord Shiva suffered from headaches, and, in the present, the representation of the god of peace is believed to possess the hand gestures of the sage.

To relieve Lord Shiva's headaches, Sage made oil using a mix of cow's milk and green coconut 42 herbs, and the oil anointed, Lord Shiva.

Attracted by his love Shiva was awed by his devotion. Shiva transformed the temple into his residence and became known as Kutralanathar and the waterfall in the vicinity of the temple was given its name Kautrallam. This custom was followed during today's Kutralanathar Temple in modern times.
