Devipattinam derives its name from the temple dedicated to Devi built at the spot where she is said to have killed the demon Mahishasura. It is said that Lord Rama calmed the sea at this coastal village to install nine stones representing the Navagrahas, hence the name Navabashanam. These stones can still be seen, partly submerged in the water close to the beach near a bathing place of the Thilakeshwar Temple or the Navagraha Temple. Navagraha stones are located in the sea, at a distance of about 100 meters from the sea shore. These can be seen in morning when the tides of the sea are low; however in evenings when the tides are high most of the navagraha stone lie submerged in the water.
