A trader from Sri Lanka used to visit Chidambaram each year for the darshan of Lord Nataraja on the Tiruvadhirai day.  His ship was caught in a tempest and could not go beyond Kulasekharan Pattinam.  He cried loudly that he had lost that precious day.  Lord Shiva decided to grant darshan to His devotee here.  The trader heard a voice advising him to follow ants going on a line and stop where the line ended.  The trader was happy to follow the ants’ line.  Lord granted the trader His Tiruvadhirai darshan at this place.  The trader built a temple here and named the Lord Chidambareswarar, thus goes the Sthala Purana – local history.
