The legend is that Lord Krishna appeared as a small kid in front of sage Vasishta and he ran with the butter from the idol sage was worshipping. Sage got angry and chased the kid. They ran and reached a holy place where some rishis were doing penance. The rishis blocked the little boy and tied him on a tree. Krishna then gave them darshan and rishis requested him to stay there to bless all the devotees. Krishna accepted and stayed here as Damodara Perumal and this place came to be known as Kannangudi.
