The place was earlier covered with bushes and was uncared for any improvement.  About 200 years ago, one Pichaimuthu found this Swayambu Amman.  The place began to see new bright times and people improved it for human habitation. Pujaris took charge of the temple maintenance on hereditary basis.  Pechi Amman statue was  brought from Tirupuvanam river.  Gradually, the temple grew in name and fame adding other Gods and Goddesses around the prakara of the temple.  The temple stands majestically with a Rajagopuram complete with features common to temples of Tamilnadu.
