The legend has that Lord Brahma was put behind the bars by Lord Subramanya for not pronouncing the ideal meaning for Pranava Mantra.  Shortly, Lord Subramanya was afflicted with the sin of capturing Lord Brahma, one of the Trinities and superior amongst the deities.  Due to the sin committed Lord Subramanya  wandered aimlessly without communicating with utter guilt or not performing his responsibilities.  He approached Lord Vishnu and appealed for a way out of the load of distress.  Lord Vishnu advised Lord Subramanya to worship Lord Shiva who would be capable to relieve him from the disillusion.  Lord Subramanya sincerely followed the instructions of Lord Vishnu, he arrived in Chengannur near Thiruppanthan consecrated a Linga and proceeded the worship.  Unfortunately, Lord Subramanya was found no relief for his grief and continued to walk away depressingly.  Finally, he arrived on this sacred land on the river banks of Arasillaru and found Lord Sivanandeswarar in a grove of Vanni.  Immediately, Lord Subramanya regained his composure and underwent strict austerities.  Lord Shiva was pleased at the devotion of Lord Subramanya and blessed him with a compassionate glance.  Instantly, Lord Subramanya relieved from the sins and attained eternal wisdom.
Worship of Lord Sivanandeswarar with Goddess Sri Mangalambika provides abundance of pieties includes mental as well as physical well being.
