Seven Shiva Vishnu Prayed Indra Deceived Saptha Vidanga Temples

In North India we have the Pancha Kedar, five temples of Shiva in the Garhwal Region.

In the south, there are seven Shiva Temples, which are to be seen in a day.

These are called the Saptha Vidanga Sthala.

Subrahmanya With Vel Pointed Down Neendoor

The festival is being celebrated even to-day, please read my post on this.

The Vel being a powerful weapon, which Subrahmanya wields represents the three principles ,Icha Sakthi(Drive of Desire).Kriya(Action) and Gnana(wisdom)

The tip of the Vel, wielded by Subrahmanya always points upwards.
