This ancient temple is located on the southern banks of the river Uppanaru. This temple is also very close to the Bay of Bengal, near Poompuhar.
In ancient times, this place was densely covered with Vilva trees. Hence this place gets the name “Vilvaranyam” and the lord here is praised as Sri Vilva Vana Nathar.
Lord Shiva of this temple is believed to be the lord who removes hardships (“kali” in Tamil). Hence this place gets the name Kalikkamur.
The historical names of this place are Vilvaranyam and Thirukkalikkamur. However, now this place is known as Annappan Pettai.
