MAVIDDAPURAM KANDASWAMY TEMPLE


On the northernmost seaside of the lovely Isle of Sri Lanka, Adorning the ancient city of YALPANAM, Known more as JAFFNA, there looms large a trimly town deriving its historic name KANKESANTHURAI (from the fact of the arrival of the image of lord KANKEYAN, Another Manifestation Of Lord Skantha) affording sight seer an opportunity to enjoy a kaleidoscopic view of the town ship that comprises several workshops, Factories, built-up areas featuring modern mansions, star hotels and developed lands. In this locality that prides in a historic background of spiritual wonders, the people live a well disciplined life conscious of religious responsibilities and showing reverence to Gurus and elders.

Mythology reveals that the aboriginal Queen Kuveni ruled ancient Lanka when King Vijaya immigrated to the island. It appears he promoted Hinduism and ordered 5 Shiva temples to be built in the four comers of Lanka. These are Thiruketheswaram and Thirukoneswaram in the east, Muneeswaram in the west, Naguleswaram in the north and Chandraspkaram in the south of Sri Lanka. He also established a temple for Lord Skantha/Kankeyan -in the north of the island where Maviddapuram was later founded.
