Thirukoshtiyur, derived from its native name Thirukotiyur. During Kritha yuga, Rishis, devas and people were tortured, anguished by the asura Hiranyakashipu as the vengeance for Hiranyaksha's death in hands of Lord Vishnu in the form of Varaha Avatar. Devas, Rishis approached Brahma and Shiva for the solution. In response Brahma, Shiva, all devas, Saptha Rishis decided to meet at one place to discuss regarding. Finally all chose Thirukotiyur as the spot. Together they came like a group and so the name came as Thirukoshtiyur, koshti means in group or as a team.

Birth of Evil or Divine


The deity mars has four arms. He has a hairy body. The small hairs of the body are red in colour. In his hands are mace and Trident and rest of the two hands are raised in the postures of bestowing fearlessness and blessings. He has a golden crown on his head and his vehicle is a lamb. He is attired in red coloured apparels and had red garlands in his neck.

In the 'Kalpa' of Varah' when Hiranyaksha, the elder brother of Hiranyakshipu had abducted the earth Lord Vishnu had taken incarnation as a boar and had rescued the earth by killing Hiranyaksha. Mother earth became very pleased after seeing lord Vishnu and had a desire to have him as her husband.
In his incarnation as a boar lord Vishnu's radiance was as dazzling illuminating and unbearable as crores of Suns. Lord Vishnu transformed his appearance into his enchanting form to fulfill the wish of the presiding deity of the earth and lived with earth for one year in aloofness. This way the birth of Mars took place (Brahmavaivarta Puran 2/8/29 to 43). 

Note : Evil is Not Completely Evil and Divine is not Completely Divine 

It Depends on

The history reported says that Hiranyaaksha stole earth, hid in the cosmic ocean and the god fought with him for 2000 years and killed him and got back the earth.

Now, consider this possible scenario from a cosmic object sense, a rouge planet(oid) made its way into our solar system, which would take a long long time for it to arrive at vicinity of the earth (a new king has risen amongst our divinities, defeated them and became a new sovereign ruler of our devata world); once it came near earth, due to its larger body & gravity, it drew earth from it's orbit around sun to orbit around itself, and continued on it's path probably uninterrupted (taking earth into cosmic ocean). At this point, Sun drew this rouge planet with all of its moons including earth to orbit around itself, and the tidal forces of gravity between this rouge planet and Sun caused a binary orbit relationship between them instead of one becoming the moon of the other. This cosmic tussle continued for 2000 years, and finally Sun drew away earth & possibly certain other moons of this rouge planet free from the rouge planet and caused them to orbit around itself (i.e. around Sun again, i.e. God has defeated Hiranyaaksha and freed earth) and the rouge planet drew itself away from Sun such that it freed itself from Sun's gravity completely and exited our solar system. 

Cosmic collisions and rouge planet interruptions in our solar system are accepted theories by modern scientists, especially for explaining how Moon came into existence and how the Astroid Belt came into place. Most recently, rouge planet theory is also claimed to be the reason for existence of Sedna planetoid in our solar system which takes 12,000 earth years to orbit sun.

From a human history standpoint, what most Purohits believe is that there was a historical emperor who basically left dharma (morality & ethics), extracted from his kingdom & subjects as much as he can for his sole benefit, became arrogant & haughty declaring that there is no god and he should be worshiped instead by people, and after exhausting all resources of the land, ended up submerging the land under water as an act of punishment because, let's say, many people on the land started complaining to other emperors or to god. Varaha means wild boar. Wild boars are currently reputed by western scholars as having dredged land from under water to above water in our ancient past. Perhaps, wild boars came onto the shores of these inundated land back then, and slowly over 2000 years dregded this submerged land from water completely. And during the end of such time, this emperor perhaps driven mad already by living a life of solitude without land or subjects and by wild boar infestation was killed by a wild boar in his old age. 

Puranas don't report historical ancient events unless the one event explained more than one occurrence, on earthly plane and/or on cosmic plane.
