  Temple History:
  It is an accepted truth in Indian philosophical thinking that all sounds including those of the Vedas and all scriptures are the products from the Udukkai instrument held by Lord Shiva.  The Saptha Swaras – seven musical sounds are no exception.  Music is one that attracts everybody including Gods.  We sing His/Her glory.  This super status in the world of sounds led the Saptha Swara deities to grow proud and the conclusion that they were greatest of all including Lord Shiva who was enticed by the Sama Gana singing of Ravana.  Noticing their pride growing, Mother Kalaivani, the Goddess of Wisdom and all arts cursed them to become dumb.  The music deities realized their folly and surrendered at the feet of Lord Shiva in silence seeking pardon and relief.
All merciful Lord Shiva advised them to go to Tiruchirapally (Tiruchi) praised equal to Mount Kailash and worship Uchi Pillayar at the hill top.  He also advised them to install and pray to a Pillayar on the Girivalam path and pray to Uchi Pillayar again.  This penance would bring them back their power of the Saptha Swaras, said the Lord.  The Music Deities meticulously followed the advice of Lord and got back what they lost.  The Pillayar is Ezhavathu Pillayar which in colloquial pronunciation changed as Ezhai Pillayar.
