Sri Sangili Karuppanar
During the rule of Madurai poligar, four black deities were causing mischief for the people of Madurai.When Sivagiri Adheenam was touring the area, the villagers appealed together to the kulaguru.The Adheenam assured the villagers that he would take all the four black deities to his place. After that, on that same night, he asked the villagers to give him four unbaked earthen pots and contained them in them. The villagers them asked on how they could trust this. Then the guru asked them to bring four thick ropes (like tug of war ropes) and pull the unbaked pots. The people pulled them but they could not pull them. Then they informed the poligar abould this incident. Then the king used his elephants and tried to pull the pots but in vain. The people then asked the guru to prove his power. He sent his assistant to take the pots. Without much ado, he placed them in their bullock cart. Then he took the black deities and established one of them to the west of Talaiyanallur Ponkaliyamman temple by the roadside and named it as Sangili Karuppanar (literally Karuppanar bound by chains).A 300 years old neem tree.
