  Temple History:
  Beginning his pilgrimage from the temples on the banks of holy Vaigai and the those on the banks of Cauvery and worshipping at the two temples on the banks of Paalaru, divine poet Sekkizhar was nearing a place on the banks of River Kushasthalai.  He saw a great Shiva temple.  It was a temple belonging to the Chola period.  The soil was so fertile with high yields of plantains and coconuts.  It was a hilly region with cool pleasant climate.  The poet decided to stay there for a while and perform penance.  The poet devotee lost himself in penance on his Lord and surrendered totally at his feet.  
Lord Shiva granted darshan to the poet-devotee relieving him of all ego and other material attachments.  He called Lord Kandazheeswara and fell at His feet.  Kandhu means attachment and Azhi means removal of attachment – Lord who removed material attachments – Kandhazheeswarar.
