Once many eons ago, a group of travelers from Kerala, went on a trip to Madurai, as they were crossing this particular area, their cart didn’t move and were surprised to find a stone under their cart. They tried to move the stone aside but, they couldn’t. They all put efforts to remove the stone, but everything failed, at last an old man who passed by them told them that, this stone is none other than Karupparayan, so praying to him before starting your journey, will bring you good luck and he vanished. Later they prayed to Karupparayana and installed the stone under a shade and started their journey. In a mean while Vandi Karuppu became very famous and everyone started to believe in him.
