Legends associated with this temple state that Shiva   swallowed the mighty deluge sent by Varunan the rain God. Sundaramoorthy Nayanar, closely associated with Tiruvarur is said to have recovered his eyesight in this temple's tank. Please see the Tyagarajar Temple at Tiruvarur for more details on Tiruvarur.
