History
It is believed that the temple was originally built by the Pandya King Jatavaraman Sundara Pandya in the 13th century CE on the banks of sacred river Coovum. The temple construction was started during the days of Sundara Pandiyan I and after his death Nalla Chinna Thambi Mudhaliyar completed the construction. This place was called Puliyur Kottathu Thirumandram during Pandyan Period. Later additions and renovations were done by the Nayaka kings. The style of the temple architecture does not appear to be of Pandyas, though. It is more aligned with Vijayanagara style.
