Boothapandy - 2

According to Dr. S. Padmanabhan, general secretary of the
Kanyakumari Historical and Cultural Research centre,
the Travancore manual, written by Nagamayya, maintains that
the place Bhoothapandy was founded by one of the Pandya kings.

According to the Shaiva tradition, Siva is worshiped in various
forms-as earth at Kanchipuram, water at Thiruvanaikkavu,
fire at Thiruvannamalai, air at Kalahasthi and ether in Chidambaram.
They are known as panchaboothasthalas.

As per the legend, the panchaboothas worshiped
Lord Siva as Boothalingam at Bhoothapandy
