An Overview About Temple

TEMPLE HISTORY (STHALA VALARU) It is believed that the Lingam starts from the land and ends at the top of the mount.  It said that the Jada mudi of lord Shiva is present at the back of temple, so we are not allowed to make a full round.(Somasundara method)

KALYANA  SUNDARESAR : Lord Shiva sent sage Agastya to this place, to balance the weight of gods attending his marriage with Goddess Parvathi.  sage had to sacrifice his wish of witnessing the wedding.  Lord assured him that He would grant the wedding darshan to him in this holy place.  Enjoying the divine darshan here At the spot where the temple now stands, sage Agastya witnessed the marriage of Shiva and Parvathi. The sage installed a lingam behind the main lingam in the temple for his worship and named as Sundaralingam.
