The name "Kumbakonam", roughly translated in English as the "Pot's Corner",When it was time of destruction for this world a huge pralaya came up. In order to save the Vedha's Amirtham and tools necessary to create lives on earth, Lord Brahma collected all these things and put them in a mud pot and kept the pot safety on the top of the Mountain Meru(mythology).. Pralaya kalam (ie) the period of non stop heavy rain came and the pot of Brahma was washed away by the flood. In due course moving in the south direction it came to halt at a particular place. For the wish of all heavenly people (Devars) Lord Shiva in the form of Kirathamurthy means hunter aimed the Puranakumbam and broke with the bow and arrow.Immediately Amudham (ie) the liquid given eternity flowed from the pot and formed two tanks. One is known as Mahamaha kulam and the other is Potramarai kulam.The remains of the pot and Amudham joined together to form "Lord Kumbeswarar"otherwise called (Shiva) in the Adi Kumbeswarar Temple.In the name of the broken pot (ie) Kudam that place was called Kudamookku or simply Kudanthai presently known as Kumbakonam in the sense the Kudam also known as Kumbam. This event is now commemorated in the Mahamaham festival held every 12 years.

This is an important divya desam of Vishnu and is also known as Tiru Kudanthai.
