arm is relaxed holding a club.
There are many legends
surrounding Madurai Veeran. One legend goes as follows: Madurai
Veeran was the son of a King, country. Veeran's bravery and
talent earned him a chance to enter the army as a Commander. But
his misfortune made him to fall by his own law which he enforced
to eradicate the robbers from the country.
His enemies, by their cunning
plot, made the king to believe that he was also one of the
robbers and must be punished. The king who was already jealous
of Madurai Veeran sentenced him to mutilation by having a hand
and a leg removed. Madurai Veeran died as a result of this
punishment. Later the King realized that Madurai Veeran was
innocent and regretted his act.
It is a common belief in some
parts of Tamil Nadu that, when you pray to Madurai Veeran for
justice when falsely accused of a crime, the actual perpetrators
of the crime will die in a fatal accident or their house will be
burnt in a fire accident.
