Legend

According to legend, a Chola king was travelling through the place when the torch carried by his men went off. It automatically started burning when the entourage had crossed the spot. On inquiring from a local shepherd, the king learnt that a holy shivalinga had been buried at the spot. The king found the shivalinga and built a temple to Shiva.

Tirunindriyur is also believed to be the place where Shiva gave darshan to Parasurama in order to relieve him of the sin of matricide.
