In those days only after Upanayanam knowledge of medicine would be granted. When the royal messengers gave the message the young boy was upset. He told his mother about the message. The mother told her son to tell the messengers that he could go only after 12 days Bhajana (prayers) in his family temple. So the young boy went to the family temple for Bhajana. On the 12th night Lord Siva came in the form of a Sanyasi (Monk) and gave him three tablets (pills). He also said that this medicine will cure the king. The king will offer many gifts but he should not accept instead he should ask the king to take the Idol of Dhanwanthari which is in the river Tamaraparni and install it on the left side of Siva and build a temple.
