As per the legends, once there was war between a Chola King and Pandyan King. In order to win Pandyan King, Chola King planned to gift him a poisoned Cloth. But Lord Shiva appeared in Pandyan King and informed about the evil intentions of Chola King. Next Day, servant of the chola king came with poisoned cloth and gave it to him but Pandyan king cleverly threw it to the servant. Because of the poisonous nature of the cloth, servant got burnt to ashes and chola king lost the eyesight.
Chola King realizing his mistake sought pardon for his act to Lord Shiva. He got his one eyesight back at Devadhanam. Lord Shiva appeared in Chola King’s dream and informed that if he built a temple for him at Seithur he will get back other eyesight. Obliging Lord Wish, he built a temple and prayed to him. Lord gave his eyesight back. Hence Lord in this place is called as Thirukaneswarar.
