The historical names of this place are Yuthigavanam, Thiru Karuppariyalur, Melaikkazhi, Kanmanasa Puram, Adhithyapuri, Thalaignayiru, Kokudikkoil and Kallar kottai.
There are 12 stone inscriptions in this temple which date back to the periods of Chola kings Kulothungan-III, Konerikondan and Thiribuvana Chakravarthy Rajarajan and Vijayanagara king Pratapakrishna Devarayar.
This temple is under the administrative control of Dharumapuram Adheenam.
However, this temple is presently in a very bad state. The main tower as well as the towers in the sanctum are in ruins and are covered with a lot of weeds and plants. Even the compound walls and shrines are in a dilapidated condition.
Other than the shrines of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathy, shrines and idols of Siddhi Vinayagar, Murugan with his consorts, Mahalakshmi, Moovar and Uma Mamaheswarar can be seen in the corridors.
In the “koshtam” (place surrounding the sanctum sanctorum), idols of Narthana Vinayakar, Dakshinamurthy, Lingothbavar, Brahma and Durgai can be seen. The idols of Chandikeswarar with his wife Yamini are depicted in a seated posture.
There is an idol of Vinayakar along with a Shivalingam under the Sthala Viruksham (Mullai plant).
