  The temple is praised in the hymns of Saivite Saint Tirugnanasambandar.   Those used to hear the praise of Lord gracing in Tirupugalur would not listen to words that are not worthy of hearing.  They will listen only words of His praise.  It is their conclusion that anytime they fail to listen to His glory, they feel they are insane, says the Saint in his hymn.   This is the 75th temple on the southern banks of Cauvery sung in Thevaram hymns.
