History of Tiruchendur Temple:

Once there lived an Asura named Soorapadman. He used to disturb all the Deva devas with his deeds. So, devas gave a complaint to Lord Shiva to end Soorapadman.

Lord Shiva opens his third eye, and from the sparks of light, Lord Murugan was born. Lord Shiva orders Murugan to remove Soorapadman.

At the same time, Devas was praying to Lord Murugan/Subramaniya Swamy. He appeared in front of the Guru Bhagavan and learnt about Soorapadman. The Lord Murugan sent a messenger to convince the Soorapadman, but he did not listen.

So, Lord Murugan, with his army, defeats the Sooorapadman. According to the wish of Guru Bhagavan, he stays here itself. This place was called Tirujeyanthipuram, and then it became “Tiruchendur”.
