Thiruchendur in South India is famous for the temple dedicated to lord Subrahmanya. Very few know the meaning of this word. It has to be split as thiru-sindhu-uur which became Thiruchendur. Thiru stands for Shri. sindhu stands for ocean and uur for place. In Sanskrit sinhu mans ocean. This place stands on the edge of the ocean.

Adi Shankaracharya in his devotional song subrahmanya bhujangam uses the word sindhu-desha meaning lord of Thiruchendur.
