Since four vedas stood as neem trees and worshipped the Lord this place is called Neem forest (Verkadu).Thiruverkadu is the place where the God has shown the marriage pose to Agasthiar. Sacred water source created by Lord Muruga with spear is called Velayutha Theertham.

This is the birth place of Moorka Nayanar. There is no Raja gopuram (temple tower) in the east side of this temple. There is a flag staff covered by copper sheet. The front entrance is facing east. There are no sannidhis in the outer corridor around the Sanctum Sanctorum. This sacred place has got the specialty of calling it "poison free place" ( poison will not affect a person in this place).

Marriage pose:
Agasthiar reached Mount Pothigai to honour the order of Lord Siva. Then balance was restored in India. Then Agasthiar went to Thiruverkadu and prayed Lord Siva to bless him with His marriage pose as blessed. Lord Siva also blessed him with his marriage pose. Even today you can witness the scene of the marriage pose of Lord Siva and goddess Parvathi with Agasthiar seating in front of them.
