Nandanar was a great devotee of  Lord Shiva in South India who hails from an humble agriculture family, the 12th century CE. The tale focuses on two miracles attributed to him. In Sivalokanathar temple  Tirupunkur; his prayers are said to have moved a giant stone bull, which still appears in the moved position in the temple. Nandanar is said to have ritually purified himself by fire at Thillai Nataraja Temple, Chidambaram. Nandanar’s tale features in temple lore and religious literature related to both these temples.
