A competition arose between Adisesha and Vayu the God of Winds about their might. They put the Meru mount at a centre which was tightly held by Adisesha. Vayu blew with all velocity to push Adisesha. Meru split into seven pieces, each as a Gem Shivalinga. The diamond piece fell in Kodumudi. This is a place for Naga worship. Majority of the devotees come here seeking relief from adverse effects of serpent planets.
