ancient temple enshrining a big size Sivalinga goes by the name of
Sri Kameswarar and is built on the bank of Vasishta river. This was
under the administration of Ekambara Mudaliyar, whose military
prowess and indomitable valour crowned him with the honour of
imprisoning Chera, Chola and Pandiya kings in his palace, once. A
unique glory. Of the two imposing temples built here, the Kameswarar
Tirukkovil is famous and its sculptural beauty too is laudable.
Another called Karivaradaperumal Kovil is equally famous for its
sculpture. Having enjoyed bounteous patronage, it turned out a
treasure of architectural sculpture piece that receives a steady
stream of devotees throughout the year. Aragalur means in Tamil -
village of six trenches and it speaks of its militant nature.
