Sarabeshwarar is one of the Greatest of the Hindu deities.Why I would say this is he gives his blessings to the people who come to him for help and benedictive people have always seen that some good happens to them when they pray Lord Sarabeshwarar.It is said that people get themselves relieved from the Curse of Shani,Raghu and Kethu if you pray with full devotion.
The Greatest Avatar of Shiva
How did Lord Sarabeshwarar came into the world as an avatar:
It began with the act of termination of the lives of the Brutal Daemons called Hiranyakashipu who is the Father of Baktha Prahalad and the brother of Hiranyaksha and Lord Vishnu took Narasimha Avatar and killed the ruthless daemon who was giving continuous torutre to his buff Prahalad.After this he(Vishnu)drank the blood of the Daemon and this Avatar of Narasimha was one of the most ferocious avatar of Vishnu and the avatar made him Uncontrollable and he(Vishnu) began to destroy all the three worlds.This act of Lord Vishnu made the Indra the King of Heaven to go and sort the help of Lord Shiva.Lord Shiva sent his chief army commander Veerabadrar and some of his army men to control Narasimha.But Veerabadrar was not able to control Narasimha and having known that it is not possible Veerabadrar immediately started to pray to Lord Shiva and after that a Bright Light from Heaven reached Veerabadrar and immediately it Transformed into one of the most ferocious creature the world has ever seen with the following features:
Mouth of a Crocodile,Tail of a Serpent,Sharp and Pointed nose like that of a Bird,Kali’s Trident(Sulam),Long Wings like Birds,Jadamudi(Long Hair spiralled at the top)and this creature saved the world from the demolishing hands of Lord Narasimha

I would like to explain the History of a temple in Madambakkam->It is called as Dhenupurishwarar Temple and the Main God here is Lord Shiva in SVAYAMBU VADIVAM->isn’t it Great???..
Actually the Madambakkam and the Adjoining areas were under the control of the Chola King and the Majority of the People were The Yadhavas->One who look after and control the Cows.It happened that one day it was seen by one of the Yadhava that a Cow was pouring Milk into a Well and this went on for some days One day on seeing this The Yadhava became angry and he clobbered the Pasu(Feminine for a Cow)and even after getting Reapeated Hitting the cow didn’t move it went on Pouring the Milk into the Well Ther Angry Yadhava Hit the Cow reapeatedly but suddenly a Weird thing happened that a Blood River was seen inside the Well while hitting the cow(Note this the Cow didn’t get even a Slightest of Injury) and After this a Svayambu A Small Protruding was seen from the Ground and the Yadhava saw the bleeding from the Head of that Swayambu and seeing this he ran and called all the People in the village..After this particular Incident it was said that LORD SHIVA came in the Dreams of Raja kulothunga Chola and told him to make a Alayam for him and told that he is in SVAYAMBU Vadivam inside the Well->Amazing isn’t it???..Later it was revealed that the cow was none other than a Sage who got a Curse from Lord Shiva and he was Born as a Cow to Wash away his sin in this way…
And there is also a Altar for Dhenukambal(Parvathy devi)over here
Just Now the Brahmotsavam got completed after 100 Years->Blokes this Temple is really something you ahve to Visit
For me this temple is everything One the Most Powerful Temples i have ever Visited->LORD SHIVA THE GREAT
