 Greatness Of Temple:

It is believed that a piece of Sanjeevi mount fell in this part of the Kongu region while Sri Anjaneya was carrying it to save Lord Sri Rama and Lakshmana.  People here call it Sanjeevi or Oodhiyur hill.  The temple is on this hill.  Passing through the Mayil Mandap – peacock hall, is the Paada Vinayagar temple with shrines for Idumban and Hanumantharayan on the north and south side of way respectively.  There is a mandap at the top called Kurattu Vasal.  The darshan of Lord Velayuthaswami in the hill that was home to many Siddhas in the past, would keep the devotee ever free from poverty in life.

  Temple History:

There is a cave in the hill where Kongana Siddhar performed penance and had the darshan of Lord Shiva.  He used clay tubes and passed air through mouth breathing to make gold by pouring the essence of herbal leaves.  There are some such clay tubes still in the hill.  Hence the place is called Oodhiyur Malai and also Kongana Giri linked with the life of Kongana Siddha.

Special Features:
  Miracle Based: The clay tubes used by Kongana Siddha for making gold still exist in this hill.
