History
Devas and Asuras churned the Paarkadal to obtain Amirtham (Nectar) that which would free from death, and alive for ever. When the Amirtham came out, Lord Vishnu in the guise of Mohini was distributing the Amirtham only to Devas. Lord Vishnu worried about that the evil deeds of the will increase multifold if Asuras consumed the nectar. Realising this reason, one of the Asuras took the form of a Deva with the help of Asura guru Sukrachariya and consumed the nectar.

Suryan and Chandran complained to Lord Vishnu as they have noticed that. Lord Vishnu came to know that and hit the Asura on the head in anger with the spoon in his hand. The head was cut off and fall down on the ground. The body portion was thrown away fell in Pothigai mountain region when the head portion joined with a snake body and became Rahu Bhagavan. The body of that Asura was preserved by a Brahmin which grew, because of having drunk the nectar. This body was attached to a snake's head and became Kethu Bhagavan.

Since Rahu is a serpent (Naga), the main deity is Naganatha Swamy and this place is named Thirunageswaram. In this shrine, Rahu is accompanied by his consorts Naga Valli and Naga Kanni. When Abhishekam is performed to Rahu during the Rahu Kaalam, the milk when it falls on the body turns blue, and again turns to white when it leaves the idol.
