The small temple here has a small shrine dedicated to Chandran. This is an ancient Saivite shrine, associated with the life of Tirunavukkarasar, although no Tevara Patikam dedicated to the shrine has been discovered so far. Tirunavukkarasar has mentioned Tingalur in a patikam of 10 songs dedicated to another Shivastalam, and hence, Tingalur constitutes of the Tevara Vaippu talangal. Legend has it that there lived a merchant Appoodi Adikal in the village of Tingalur who was a devotee of Shiva. Appoodi Adikal held Tirunavukkarasar in high regard and looked forward to the day when he would be able to host the saint poet. The day arrived, but his son got killed by a venomous snake bit while the saint was being hosted. The saint moved by Appodi Adikal's devotion is said to have miraculously restored the lad to life.
