Temple History:
Sage Tirunavukkarasar, one of the worshipful four Saivite saints was subjected to untold persecution by the Jains. Their chief and king Mahendravarma ordered that the saint be tied with a heavy stone and thrown into the Bay of Bengal. But Saint Tirunavukkarasar chanted the Panchakshara Mantra (pancha – five, Akshara-letters) Na ma shi va ya which made the hard stone into a floating cork wood that moved southwards. The saint reached the shores through Kedila river.

Lord Shiva with Mother Parvathi on the Vrushaba (the bull vehicle of Lord Shiva) and Lord Muruga on his peacock vehicle graced their darshan to saint Tirunavukkarasar on his reachingm the shores. Based on this event, a temple was erected for Lord Muruga here.

This event of the saint reaching the shores is celebrated annually on the Anusha Star day.
