TIRUVANGAD PERUMAL

An inscription on the balikkal or altar at the entrance to the temple reads that the temple was renovated in A.D. 826 and that one Kaveri Ammal of Coorg donated the balikkal.   In any case there is no doubt that the temple is several centuries old.

According to legend Swetamuni installed the temple.  Sage Agastya along with his disciples was proceeding to the Kaveri River for a holy dip.  On the way he was obstructed and troubled by two hunters in a forest. Enraged, the sage cursed them both. Repenting their action the two pleaded with the sage for mercy.  He advised them to perform tapas in two Siva temples.  The two men did this and were redeemed.   They were known as Neelarshi and Swetarshi.
