It is believed that while Pattinathar was playing with the cowherd boys at Thiruvotriyur, he disappeared from the spot and attained Siva Sayujyam, the final liberation of the soul. It is said that the relatives including his wife came to the spot where Pattinathar attained mukthi and offered their devotion.

There are two siddhars one Pattinathar and the second vallalar are the only saints who have not left any mortal remains of the body. In other words they have attained god with their body (Eraivanudan errandara kalandhargal). Hence we could not see samadhi for these two saints.
