This temple is one of the gathering of places of worship worked by Aditya Chola along the banks of River Cauvery, to recognize his triumph over Pandyas amid Tirupurambiyam Battle in 885 CE. The sanctuary has a few engravings from the Chola period going back to the tenth century.
The sanctuary has been pronounced a secured landmark by the Archeological Survey of India. The sanctuary cherishes Erumbeeswarar, another type of Lord Shiva as the managing god alongside his associate Saurabhya Kudalaambal. This sanctuary is based on a 60 ft high slope called as Malai Kovil and can be gotten to by a situation of steps. Master Shiva in this sanctuary is accepted to act naturally showed. As it is a sand Lingam, no abhishekas are performed here.
