The lord here worshipped Sage Viyakrapathar, also called “Pulikkal Munivar” in Tamil, whose legs are thought to have been like those of a tiger (tiger is puli in Tamil). Indeed, this temple’s Sthala Viruksham is the white “erukku” (Calotropis) vine, hence this site gets the name “Erukkathampuliyur” (“Atham” means Tamil forest). Now the village is named Pattinam Rajendra.
