History of Thiruthani Murugan Temple
Lord Rama after killing the Ravana, worshipped Lord Shiva at Rameshwaram and then came to Tiruttani to find perfect peace of mind. In Dwapara, Arjun got the blessings of Lord Murugan when he was on his way to Teertha yatra in the Southern part of India.
Lord Vishnu prayed to Lord and got back his powerful chakra which was forcefully taken from Him by Tarakasura, brother of Soorapdma.
On worshipping the lord at Thanikai, the king of Snakes Vasuki got his bodily wounds healed, which has been caused due to “Samudra Manthan” by the devas and asuras when the Mantotra Mountain was used as churning base and the snake king Vasuki as the rope.
