Thingalur Kailasanathar temple is noted for the importance of first rice feeding of the infant child known as Anna Prasanam. People pray here for removal of obstacles in marriage talks, for child boon and progress in education.
Thingalur is a place that is closely associated with the life and times of a Shiva devotee of rarest of the rare nature named Appudhi Adigal. Adigal is a suffix used in the names of renowned religious leaders and ascetics. Appudhi Adigal belongs to this category of leaders as a role model teaching the greatness of Guru. He did not perform penance. He did not worship even Lord Shiva. He had in his mind only the great Shiva devotee Sage Tirunavukkarasar. For him everything was Tirunavukkarasar alone. He named his eldest son Senior Tinavukkarasu, younger son Junior Tirunavukkarasau and every charity institution he established was named after the sage. In his decisive opinion, serving a devotee means serving God, a truth approved by God Himself.
Villagers commence the rice feeding of their infant children in the temples of their family deities. The affluent do this in the Guruvayurappan temple. In Tamilnadu Thingalur Kailasanathar temple is noted for this ritual. It should be understood that showing the moon to the child while feeding is not simply to make the child cheerful and eat but there is a spiritual aspect too.
Mahashivarathri in Masi (February-March), Margazhi Tiruvadhirai (December-January), Panguni Uthiram in March-April, Tirutarthikai in November-December are the festivals celebrated in the temple.
