TIRUVANGAD PERUMAL

The story goes that when Tipu directed his guns against the eastern gopuram from a nearby hill, a bullet from the temple in retaliation hit Tipu's cannon and immobilized it.  Following this he had to stop the operations and stage a retreat. The place where Tipu assembled his army was known as 'perum porkalam', literally large battlefield.  This name in course of time came to be known as 'perumkalam'. The pallivetta, the hunting expedition of the Lord during utsavam is conducted here.

Though the temple was desecrated by Tipu, it is noteworthy that the British were sympathetic towards it and one of its sub-collectors, namely Thomas Harvey Baber even turned a staunch devotee of the deity and became a regular visitor to the temple.  It is said that once Baber was passing through the- temple galloping on his horse.
