Description: The main gate of the temple faces the East direction.  Deity of the temple is Sree Vettaiyaadiaya Piraan.  The god presides the temple along with Sridevi and Poodevi.  The deity looks alike that of Tirupathi, adding more specialty to the temple.On the southern side (south-west) of the main gate, Soundaravalli Naachiyaar presides.

History:  The temple’s administration is with Tamil Nadu government. It is, decedents of ‘Inanyaa Chaariyaar’ who came from Karnataka’s Madya district, who maintain the temple and are the Darmakarthaas of this temple. When Gajini Muhamad and other islamic warriors came to this area, the main diety was hidden in a cloth and was taken deep into the forest to hide from them.  Then after the end of the rule of islamic warriors, the statue was brought back.  This great service was done by ‘Venkatapathy Das’ and still his decedents serve the temple.

Even though the announcement board asks pilgrims to take a dip in the pond at the hill top and come around the temple hill to get all the requests that the person will place in front of the presiding diety, the staffs at the temple does not allow anyone to have a dip in the pond and the permission is granted only to VVIPs!!!
