History and Significance of Sri Agni Veerabadraswami Temple, Palanganatham 

People facing disputes in land matters, fall in farm yields and buildings standing half-built due to some reasons, come to Lord Veerabadra for solutions. As Mars (Sevvai in Tamil) is the authority in land matters, they bring a little sand from their lands, place it before the Lord and take it back as Prasad and spill it on their land or building. Then they offer Kesari nivedhana with garlands of betel, vilwa and lime fruits. Those unable to identify their family deity, consider Lord Veerabadra as their family deity. Vilwa is the sacred tree of the place.
