Moolavar : Sri Mandhirapurieswarar
Ambal was called as “Periya Nachiyar”. The same was mentioned in the Rajaraja-III’s 20th reign year inscription, which mentions as “Thirukamakottamudaya Periya Nachiyar”. In that Pillaipurosaikudayar, mentioned was the son of Rajaraja-III. One part of the temple thirupani was done by Ezhupathonpathu nattupathinen bhumikarar alias Karpaga Pillayar and Andar Prasanna devar.
Thiribhuvana Chakravarthy Rajaraja-III’s 30th reign year inscription records the establishment of Subramaniya Pillaiyar ( Murugan ) by Kanrappoorudayar in the western prakara. The same Kings 8th reign year inscription records Pallavaneeswarar was established by Payyurnattu Payyuzhan Pichan Pallavarayan alias Chozhiya Pallavarayan on the western prakara.
There is a Shiva Linga in the prahara. A wall was raised around the Shiva Linga, which formed like a pit with a capacity to hold 3000 litres of water. It is believed that water will be filled above the Shiva Linga to get rain. This is being practiced even in the present days.
