Kubera the lord of wealth lost his prominence due to the curse of Lord Shiva for Kubera's evil glance on Parvathi. When he repented of his sin and sought forgiveness from Shiva and Parvathi, they advised him to do penance at Thirukkolur. After his penance at Thirukkolur, Vaithamanithi Perumal blessed him with his original position with the wealth. Vaithamanithi Perumal is in reclining pose with the wooden measurement tool as his pillow to measure the wealth and looking at the palm of his left hand to watch over a location of the wealth. It is believed that people pray here are blessed with great wealth
