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.
