This is the place where Lord Shiva collected Foods for Nandhi’s Marriage

It said to be that when Poverty raised in the world Ambal Annapurani blessed to grow Choru (Choru means cooked rice in Tamil) near by field and fed her devotees, thus the name came to this place as Thiru Chotru thurai. Even now we can see a field near by called as Choruudayan vaikal.

This one of the Saptha sthana Sthalam, this is third in order. Food distribution is done to the devotees during festival day.
