About Jalagandeswarar Temple, Vellore
Encircled by beautiful water fencing it, the temple was built at the centre of a water tank. While performing pujas, water is in fact drawn from the tank itself and offered to the Gods. Intricate stone sculptures can be found everywhere of deities worshipped by the locals. There are three inner sanctums.
Legend has it that there was once an ant-hill where the current sanctum exists. During the monsoon, the rain water that would gather at the lower levels of the ant hill made a resevoir there. A Shivalingam rested there as well. However, Lord Shiva appeared in the dreams of a local chieftain and asked him to remove the shivalingam and install the Lord instead.
