The emergence of this koil needs introduction for proper comprehension. Its hoary legend begins with the atrocities perpetrated by that asuradham-Surapadma after obtaining potent boons. A little flash back is essential at this stage.

Surapadma the awful demos created a new hell in heaven and subjected the amarapuravasis to innumerable and insurmountable troubles besides unending problems given to the pious innocent on earth. When the afflicted prayed to Lord Mahavishnu for intervention he advised that none but the valorous son of  Gowri Shankar could bring them relief by killing that ruthless. Surapadma and his brother Taraka and Singamukha, Devendra manged get Lord Siva united in wedlock with Parvathi with the assistance of Manmatha and the son Shanmuga born to them embarked upon military campaign against Surapadma. AIthough an exceptional danava blessed with special boons, Lord Shanmuga ably and superbly guided his army in the operations, proving more than a match to the danavas front the start to finish and at last Lord Shanmuga won the battle. The battle field presented a horrible sight with the dead and dying.  Lord Siva the omni-compassionate descended on the scene fit the robes of doctor and succored help.
