Nan Sei Idayaru has also the Shivalinga installed by Beema of the Pancha Pandava brothers known for his prowess. Though good in nature, he had the pride that he was the strongest and could not be conquered. This thought told upon his fame. Lord Vishnu wanted to teach him humility through Lord Shiva who created a Purushamirugam (a creature with human body and animal head). Beema was not able to stand before its power. He began to run away screaming Govinda, Gopala for safety. He escaped from this creature by the grace of Lord Shiva. He performed pujas at five places on the banks of Manimutharu springing from the Servarayan hills. Salem Sukavaneswarar, Uthamachozhapuram Karapuranathar, Pillur Veeratteswarar, Paramathi Beemeswarar and Nan Sei Idayaru Eyilinathar temples are these five worshipped by Beema.
