It is a Saiva kshetra of great importance, situated at a distance of 5 Km from here. It is the birth place the famous Nayanmar called Nandanar, who being a Panchama fell victim to caste - conscious orthodox. Bhrahminism. But his piety moved Lord Siva, who bade the Dwaraphlaka to instruct Nandi - his vehicle to move a little further for the full darsan of his linga to him, who always was adoring, standing in the compound, opposite the Mulavirat. He obeyed and that bhakta enjoyed the darsan for the first time. 

The temple bears testimony to the many episodes concocted with .that Immortal bhakta and hence a visit-worthy place. Among them, the temple pond supposed to have been dug by that bhakta single - handed in a single night is found full of clear water always and attracts the visitors for a bath at a mere sight. Legend says that he was assisted by Gangpathi during the digging operations.
