This is one of the 276 Devara Padal Petra Shiva Sthalams and 33rd Shiva Sthalam in Nadu Naadu. It is said that this is the last (276th) Paadal Petra Shiva Sthalam that has been identified so far.
Lord Shiva in this temple is a Swayambumurthi (self-manifested).
The procession idols (Urchavars) are kept somewhere else for safety reasons as they have been stolen once and later recovered.
This is a Rahu-Kedu parikara Sthalam.
There is no flag post (Kodimaram) or main tower (Rajagopuram) in this temple.
This temple is around 1500 years old and was built in the Chola period. “Killi” is the surname of Chola kings and there are historical references to kings from the Chola period like King Nedungkilli and King Killivalavan.
It is possible that this place’s name “Kiliyanur” might have been derived from its connection to the Chola dynasty.
As per the stone inscriptions in the temple, it can be deduced that this temple was first built using bricks and later reconstructed using granite during King Paranthaka Chola-I’s period.
Apart from Lord Agastheewarar’s shrine, there is a separate shrine for Goddess Akilandeswari.
The idols of Vinayagar, Agasthiyar, Gajalakshmi, Murugan with his consorts Valli and Devasena, Kaala Bairavar, Pitchandavar, Dhakshinamoorthy, Mahavishnu, Brahma, Durgai, Navagraham, Suryan and Chandran can be seen in the corridors.
Devotees visit this temple and worship the lord here to seek remedies for obstacles in marriage proposals and to seek the lord’s blessing for good education.
It is also believed that worshiping Lord Shiva here will grant the boon of childbirth to childless couples.
It is a common belief that drinking the abishekam milk (milk that has been poured on the lingam) at this temple can cure illness, especially stomach ailments.
Since Adisheshan is believed to have worshipped Lord Shiva here, this temple is considered as a parikara Sthalam for Rahu-Kedu Dosham.
