This is one of the 276 Devara Paadal Petra Shiva Sthalams and 12th Shiva Sthalam in Nadu Naadu.
Lord Shiva in this temple is a Swayambumurthi (self-manifested).
The west facing temple has three corridors and its huge (160 feet high) main tower (Rajagopuram) has 7-tiers.
The last consecration ceremony (Maha Kumbabishekam) took place on 06.02.2003.
The temple is on the southern bank of the river Pennai. It is believed to have been constructed during the 7th century by the Pallava kings. This temple is built on top of a rock (Paarai). The rock and the nearby river bring out the beauty of this temple.
There are two entrances - one through the main road and the other through the river-side which is very scenic.
In Tamil, “Arai (Paarai)” means rock and “Ani” means beauty. Hence, the lord here is named as “Araiani Nathar” – the Lord who is beautifully seated on top of a rock. This place was earlier called “Arayaninallur” and its name has since been changed to Arakandanallur.
