Mars at Vaitheeswaran Kovil. Mars faces the south, and Lord Dhandayuthapani who is in the east facing Mars. Mars showers on his devotee's benefits such as good harvest in the fields, good income and save his devotees from sufferings. He enhances the respectability and dignity of those who worship him. He also helps his devotees to come out of financial indebtedness. Mars is worshiped on Tuesdays by offering red flowers.

Mars, named so for the Roman God of war, shows how we express our energy, ambition, assertiveness and sex drive. As Mars is so indicative of our ambition and our drive to succeed, it is often a useful indicator of how someone will react in a working environment. It is said that women are strongly attracted to a partner whose Sun sign matches the sign that resides in Mars in her chart. For men it is said that they are drawn to women whose Sun sign matches the sign that resides in Venus in his chart. It could be argued that Venus represents the more feminine side of sexuality and Mars the more masculine side.

This town is also called as Pull-irukku-Veloor. Jadayu - the eagle who made a gallant attempt to stop. Ravana from proceeding to Lanka with Sita, got relieved of his wings by Ravana, fell down here and eventually got Moksha. Even today we can see the place where Jadayu was cremated - 'Jadayu Kundam'.
