Thingalur Sthala varalaru, doshams and remedial measures
Chandran is also hailed as Thingal and his abode is
Thingalur. it is here that Chndran prayed to Lord Siva and got
his blessings. As Chandran is held in the locks of Lord Siva, all
devotees who worship Easwaran have also to worship this planet.
The Devas and asuras were churning the paarkadal using Mandira
Malai and the snake Vasuki. The asuras held the head portion of
the snake and the devas, the tail portion. The poison emitted by
Vasuki was consumed by Lord Siva to save the devas, but the
toxicity of venom affected the Devas who swooned on its impact.
Alongwith the nectar (amirtham), Chandran emerged and it was he
who revived the Devas.
Apputhi Adigal was born in Thingalur. he was an
ardent follower of Thirunavukkarasar, without ever laying his
eyes on the great soul. He did a lot of welfare activity in his
hometown in the name of Thirunavukkarasar. During his visit to
this holytown Thirunavukkarasar heard about Apputhi Adigal and
visited his abode and consented to partake in the meal offered in
his honour. To serve food for Thirunavukkarasar, Apputhi Adigal
sent his son to the garden to fetch a plantain leaf. When on this
errand, a snake bit him and the lad passed away. Not wishing to
disappoint his guest, Apputhi Adigal covered the corpse of his
son and tried to serve his mentor. But realising the situation,
Thirunavukkarasar carried the corpse to the temple of Lord siva
in Thingalur and revived the boy singing and imploring the Lord
Dosham to mother, mental retardation, skin and
