Thirukovilur is one of the "Ashta Veeratanams" [Ashta - eight Veeratanam - Place of Bravery].

Lord Shiva took various forms(incarnations) to destroy evil and establish justice, of which eight Avatars(forms) are very famous and Tirukoilur is one of them. Ambal (meaning Mother) [better half of lord Shiva],is called as "Brhan nayaki" [Brahan - universe Nayaki - Leader/Queen].
