Once upon a time A trader carrying pepper told a lie that it was only pulse, fearing the high tax for pepper on those days. He paid a small tax for pulse and he moved on. Crossing the nearby town Vridhachalam, he found the pepper has turned into pulse. He understood that it was only a punishment imposed on him by the Lord of the Shiva, and offered worship there and got the pulse( Pulse is called as payar in tamil) back into pepper again. Hence the Lord of the shrine was called “Payaranee Nadhar or Payaraneeswarar” henceforth. The place was also called “Payaraneechuram”.
