It is said that two demons brothers Ilavala and
used to kill Brahmins as a revenge in a simple manner. The two had special power, they came up with a plan to take revenge on Brahmin. "Vatapi" would t urn in to ripe mango. He would invite any-passengers by especially Brahmins for grand feast at his home. after eat mango, ilavala would call his brother out "vatapi" , his brother would respond from the belly of the visitor and come out alive in one piece. In the process the guest would be killed. The two demons later wound enjoy a curry made of human flesh. One day, Agathiyar happened to pass through by, the plan as usual, Vatapi changed into a ripe mango and other disguised himself as brahmachari(Sage of Bachelor) who invited agathiyar to eat at the home. Agathiyar knew about the plan due to his immense Vedic Power, he resolves to teach both a lesson. After the meal agathiyar simply rubbed his stomach saying "
Jeerano bhave" may
be digested, while other demon tries to bring his brother life, but in vain. Agathiyar plainly informed the demon that his brother has been digest and could no longer be brought back to life bringing their treachery to end.
During the dawn of war, Paranjothi worshipped a Ganesha sculpture on the walls of Vatapi fort. On the return from the victorious battlefield, he took the statue of Ganesha to his birthplace Tiruchenkattankudi to be worshipped as Vatapi Ganapathi. The statue and shrine to
Ganapathi is located in a temple in Tiruchenkattankudi in Tiruvarur district in the Tamil Nadu state of India. This is the oldest evidence for worshiping Ganesha in Tamil Nadu. Before this incident, there most likely no followers of Ganesha in Tamil Nadu.
His general Paranjothi (a Vikrama Kesari, also known as paradurgamarddana) was known very well for his devotion to Lord Siva and as one of the 63 Nayanmar saints, is said to have indeed personally destroyed the city of Vatapi under the command of Narasimhavarman I. Sekkizhaar's work 12th tirumurai credits this siruttondar of having destroyed the evil kali as manifested by the deccan enemy of pallavas. He is also known as 'Siruthonttar', a dutiful warrior and a practicing medic who had "mastered several treatises in medicine". This vikramakesari had at the insistence of Lord Sivan sacrificed his child without any qualms. There was a confusion as to whether the Ganesha at a temple in Chengattankudy could have been a result of this invasion but this seems not to be true because the temple and association of Lord Ganesha with the same are well described in "sthalapuranam" or the literature discussing the importance of the place. The Ganesha seems to be installed several thousands of years ago in a previous epoch. Many grants refer to this event as: "kilisayoneriva vimattita
" or the one who destroyed Vatapi, the same way Sage Agastya had killed a demon by that name long ago.(**)
