This is the 96th temple on the southern bank of Cauveri praised in Thevaram hymns.

Lord Shiva graces in the temple as a Swyambu Linga Murthy worshipped by Sage Abasthamba and the Four Vedas. It is said that a snake sometimes moves on the head of Shivalinga.

The presiding deity graces sitting under a Vimana (roofing in the sanctum sanctorum) called Gajabrushta Vimanam.  This is a Mada type temple.

Belonging to the Chola period, the temple is a monument of all architectural beauty.  This was renovated in olden days by Chola king Aditya .  The sanctum sanctorum is square in shape and the peak is shaped as a round ball.  Every pillar speaks of the aesthetic beauty.

Prayers:

People pray for removal of obstacles in marriage alliances, brilliance in education, and all general benefits in life.
