The famous poem in Tamil in praise of 'Lord Shiva and Parvathi Devi' was composed by the Divine Child 'Thiru Gnana Sambandar' at this place.
According to legend, when Gnana Sambandar was three years old his parents took him to the Shiva temple where Shiva and his consort Parvati appeared before the child. The goddess nursed him at her breast. His father saw drops of milk on the child's mouth and asked who had fed him, whereupon the boy pointed to the sky and responded with the song 'Todudaya Seviyan' - the first verse of the 'Thevaram'.
He was known for writing so many great classical poems in Tamil language which are very popular in Tamil literature.
