Sthala PuranamThe place Thirueengoimalai is a holy place as Emerald lingam used to be situated at the hills and river Kaveri is widest in its flow at this particular site. Sage Agasthya had performed penance here and assumed the form of a bee. He continues to grace this place in his astral form.

Once when the body of Devi Dakshayani was cut to pieces by Lord Vishnu, the splendor of her face fell on this emerald hill and therefore it is called Chaya Peetam. Chaya means the shadow of splendor.
