Temple History
God created humans and humans give poojas to the Lord. Devils created diseases which cure with the lord by praying with poojas. A devotee of Lord Murugan Annasamy Naicker who had a chronic disease visited Murugan abodes to cure his disease. Sadhu who advised to Annasamy to start and worship lord Murugan in the house instead of roaming temples. Annasamy painted a picture of Lord Murugan and worship in his house, later he got cured and offered his tongue to Thirutani Murugan. Still, he got more affection with Murugan and continue his spiritual visit towards the south temple Palani. We have to accept here one thing, that when we get to cure of disease, we don't stop to pray God. Annasamy visited deity of Dhandayuthapani and descending steps he saw the beautiful picture of Palaniandavan which grabbed his eyes, He bought the picture to his home to Chennai and kept under the small thatched roof. Annasami used to solve the people problems along with Lord Murugan picture, the words of Annasamy called as Arul Vaaku among the people.
