 Greatness Of Temple:
     
 

This is one of the three temples within one temple ranking among the Divyadesas.   There are three Divyadesas within this temple Tiru Ooragam, Tiru Neeragam and Tiru Karakam.  It is said that barring Tiru Ooragam, other temples were elsewhere earlier and were set together under one roof at a later period.  Saint Tirumangai Azhwar had included all these Divyadesas in one Mangalasasanam hymn.

 
     
  Temple History:
     
 

In his Mangalasasanam, Tirumangai Azhwar had specifically mentioned the name of the Lord of this temple as Karvaanathu Ullai Kalva – “you are in Karvaanam stealing the hearts of the devotees.” Hence, this temple assumes greater significance than the other two.

 

Historians are unable to conclude whether Tiru Neeragam and Tirukarakam had come to join Tiru Ooragam when Azhwar came here to submit his Mangalasasanam.  Or did Azhwar sung his hymns at different places.  When the temples met together, are questions still not solved.
