Once Lava and Kusa, the sons of Rama lived in this place, when Rama was passing this place, they have fought a war with Rama himself without knowing that he was their father. As the young children waged a war here, the place was called Siruvar Por Puri where Siruvar means children, Por Puri means waging a war, in Thamizh. This place is now called Chinnambedu, which originally was Siruvar Ambu Edu means children who took their arrows for the fight.
Some hundreds of years back there lived a lady called Murugammai in this village. She had been a very ardent devotee of Lord Muruga here. She always used to chant His name and praying Him, for years. Her husband who didn’t like her worshipping all the time was warning her to stop it. But she never listened to him and her husband one day cut her arms off out of anger. Even then, Murugammai cried for help only with Lord Muruga. The Lord who was pleased with her bhakti, made her hands join even without the signs of any wound.
