This is the place where Chandran blessed by Kailasanathar to get rid of his sins. When Devas and Asuras were churning Thiruparkadal using Mandhra Hill and Serpant Vasuki, the asuras held the head portion of the snake and devas held the tail portion

Due to the heavy pain during the churning, Vasuki emitted the dangerous poison and the same 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 - Amirhdam, Chandran emerged and it was he who revived the Devas. When Lord Vishnu was distributing the blessed Nectar amongs the devas and asuras, at the behest of Sukracharya, one of the asuras in the guise of a deva consumed the nectar. Suryan and Chandran noticed this and complained to Lord Vishnu. An angry Vishnu, who was distributing the nectar in the guise of Mohini - An Avatar used his Chakrayudham to cut the asura into two and threw them away.

Since the Asura consumed the Nectar he was not dead. Later pleased Lord Maha Vishnu joined the head with a snake’s body who was later became Raghu Bhagavan. He joined the head of a snake with the body portion who was later became Kethu Bhagwan. Eventhought they became The Navagrahas, Raghu and Kethu did not forgive Suryan and Chandran. Rahu went after Chandran and started consuming him. It is here that Chandran prayed to Lord Siva and got his blessings. Lord Shiva as Kailasanathar blessed Chandran with the power to grow back to full moon in 15 days after being consumed by Raghu, which is known as Waxing and Waning Moon. Lord Shiva also gave Chandran a previlege by adorning on his forehead as one of his ornaments.
