Chennai: Chennai 2000 Plus Trust organised a special Talk on Chennai and Agathiyar by writer Thiruppur Krishnan on February 20, 2016, at Marundheeswarar Temple, Thiruvanmiyur, Chennai.

The programme was held in association with Sri Krishna Sweets.

Sage Agathiyar had a special role in Chennai, especially at the Tiruvanmiyur temple since Lord Siva appeared before him after his penance there. Lord Siva explained to him the value of various medicinal herbs with their special medicinal properties which could various diseases. Agathiyar later released this to the world so that people could cure themselves of illnesses with the help of Shiva's advice. That is why Siva is revered  at Thiruvanmiyur as Marundheeswarar and that is why the temple is known as Marundheeswarar Temple.

Thiruppur Krishnan, editor of Amudhasurabhi, explained about this special connection between Agathiyar and Chennai.
