This is the birth place of noted Tamil Scholar Vennikuyathiar belonging to the Sangam Age. One of her songs in Purananuru mentions the war of Karikal Chola known as Vennippor - war of Venni.
The Battle of Venni was fought by Karikala Chola between Pandya and Chera kings. The battle resulted in absolute victory for Karikala Chola and the Chera King Uthiyan Cheralathan starved himself to death.
The battle, dated approximately 190 CE, is considered historical and Karikala is believed to have contributed to this temple’s development after the victory.

This is mentioned as the Great Victory in an epigraphic note. It is believed that worshippers of Pidari Amman have no fear of enemies.
