History :

Three cruel demons Tharaka, Kamalaksha and Vidyunmali, proud of the boons and the resultant powers they gained from Lord Brahamma through their intense penance, began to harass the Devas violently. Unable to face their onslaught, Devas appealed to Lord Shiva for protection and freedom. Lord Shiva combined both earth and heaven and marched against the demons. According to rules, every work should start with Vinayaka worship. Lord Shiva is no exception. In his hurry to wage the war against the demons to save Devas, He forgot this protocol. Devas too, having Lord Himself with them ignored Vinayaka. Angry Vinayaka stopped Lord Shiva’s march by breaking the axis of His car. Axis in Tamil means Achu. Realizing the mistake, Lord asked Vinayaka to help in His mission. Son immediately obeyed. This event took place here. Hence, the place came to be known as Achu Iru Bagam (where axis broke) and later Achirupakkam came to stay. Lord is Atcheeswarar.
