Temple History:
Sage Agasthya took a pilgrimage to all shrines of Lord Muruga. He was accompanied by Maharshi Narada and the Devas. There was no water in this place to prepare the nivedhana for the puja. Sage Agasthya was sad. He prayed to Lord for water. Lord promptly appeared, punched His Vel and created a spring flowing abundant water. Happy was the Sage. He completed the puja and quenched his thirst too.

As the spring came from a pit, the place was named Oothukuli –Oothu means spring and pit means Kuli in Tamil. A temple was erected here for Lord Muruga who did the wonder here.
