  Temple History:
     
 

Indira the king of Devas desired to have Akalika, wife of sage Gautama.  To realize his illegal wish, he came to his Asram in the guise of the sagehimself.  He also made a trick to send the sage out of the hermitage.  Akalika too, though knowing that the visitor was not her husband, yielded to Indira.  Meantime, the sage returned home and understood what was happening.  Indira immediately took the form of a cat and tried to escape.  Angry Sage cursed Indira to have the female organ throughout his body.  He cursed Akalika to become a stone.  When Akalika begged the sage for relief, he said that her curse will end on the day when the feet of Lord Sri Rama touched her stone form.

 

Indira went to Brahmma and narrated his sad story and sought a remedy.  Lord Brahmma advised him to worship Lord Shiva in Kurumanakudi.  Indira had a dip in the spring and worshipped the Lord.  The ugly sign in the body changed into 1000 beautiful eyes which Lord accepted.  Hence, Lord is named Kan Ayiram (1000 eyes) Udayar.
