Thoranamalai is a town near Kadayam in Tenkasi district. Thoranamalai Murugan Temple is located on a hill in this town.
This hill is the place where Theraiyar Siddhar Jeevasamadhi was reached. Agathiyar Siddha Vaithiya Road was built on this hill many years ago.
Many of Agathi’s disciples learned medicine here. Theraiyar was also a disciple of Agathiyar.
First cranial surgery was performed in Thoranamalai.
Once upon a time there was a toad frog in the head of a king that made it very difficult for him to live.
It was here that Theraiyar Siddhar performed cranial surgery on him.
When the skull was removed, the toad appeared. When everyone was thinking about how to take it without damaging the brain.
The Theraiyar brought water in a pot and placed it near the king’s head.
The toad jumped into the pot. Then cover the open skull with herbs. This is why he became known as Theraiyar.
Thoranamalai was the first place in the world where cranial surgery was performed.
