The legend behind the festival tells of Murugan and Sage Agastya’s disciple, Idumban. Idumban was asked by Sage Agastya to place two hills, named after Shiva and Shakti, and place them in South India. Idumban carries the hills and places it in South India as an offering to Lord Murugan. Because of this tale, anyone who carries a load on a ‘cavadee’ as an offering to Murugan on this day can expect to receive his blessings. Devotees usually carry a colorfully decorated arch, to symbolize hills, or other loads on the ‘cavadee’ and proceed to a temple of Murugan.
