Veera Sarabeshwarar  
Sri Maha Sudharshana Murthy

According to Hindu mythology Lord Shiva sends Veerabhadra to quell the anger of Lord Narasimha after the latter had vanquished the demon King Hiranyakashipu. Unable to control the turbulence of Lord Narasimha, Veerabhadra pleads to Lord Shiva for help. A shaft of light enters Veerabhadra who assumes the magnificent form of Lord Sarabeswara. The 12-foot icon of Sri Veera Sarabeswara at Chennai Skandasramam is half-bird and half-beast, with two wings bearing Goddess Prathyankira and Goddess Soolini on either side. The face is that of a Yali. Sarabeswara bears a deer, battleaxe, snake and fire in his four hands. He also bears Bhairava and Agni in his abdomen. Two of his four feet rest on a mountain. The benign grace of Lord Veera Sarabeswara is said to protect devotees from all kinds of malevolent forces. The Asta bhairavar’s `Achithanga Bhairavar, Ruru Bhairavar, Chanda, Krodana, Kabala, Unmatha, Bheeshana, Samkara, svarnakarshana Bhairavar are installed around the Sannadhi. This gopuram represents the Tamilnadu type of architecture.
