the wheels got struck on the earth.  Hence the name, Ther = celestial car; azhunthur = which got stuck on
the earth.

தொழுமா றுவல்லார் துயர்தீ ரநினைந்
தெழுமா றுவல்லார் இசைபா டவிம்மி
அழுமா றுவல்லார் அழுந்தை மறையோர்
வழிபா டுசெய்மா மடம்மன் னினையே.


He is in Azhundhai (Tiru Azhunthur) and He graces those who come and pray to Him and those who
for removing their miseries come to Him and weep. He is also graces those who come and sing His glory
with songs of good music.  The Brahmins also come and do pujas for Him. All these are for Siva
in Thiru Azhunthur.

Arunachala Siva.
