 Greatness Of Temple:
  The place is named Sukshma Pureeswaram as couples separated earlier had a re-union here.  The temple is praised by Saint Tirugnana Sambandar in his Thevaram hymns.  Sun God, Sage Vishwamitra and Gandharvas had worshipped Lord in this temple.
Planet Mars-Angaraka had his curse relieved in this temple.  Those under adverse aspects of this planet will overcome delays in their marriages and the sick will be cured, if they worship him in the temple.
Tuesdays in Masi month-February-March are suggested for Mars worship when special pujas are performed here with Vilwa leaves and Mangala Theertham-water from a well-for the reunion of couples.  Those afflicted by Mars problems visit the temple in large numbers for relief.
The Navagraha-9 planets-mandap in the temple is different.  Child Saint Tirugnana Sambandar who sang the Kolaru Pathigam (a prayer to Lord Shiva with Mother for relief from the adverse aspects of planets and other natural dangers people face in life) is along with the planets.
It may be recalled that ripe Saint Tirunavukkarasar advised Child Tirugnana Sambandar to postpone his Madurai trip to debate with the Jain monks and to save the Pandya king, as the time then was not auspicious and very unfavourable then.  The Child Saint simply said that the planets would never be hostile to Shiva devotees.  The Kolaru Pathigam is the outcome of this event.  This is being chanted by all believers as a daily prayer.  So the child saint is also among the planets as their beloved one.  The added significance is that Lord Bhairava and Lord Vinayaka are in this mandap.
  Temple History:
  While Mother Parvathi and Lord Shiva were playing dice, luck was turning to Mother.  At this stage, Lord Shiva suddenly disappeared.  Shocked Ambica began to search for Lord and finally came to this place dense with Vilwa trees.  She made a Linga in sand and worshipped.  Lord appeared before Mother and said that He was planning to lose the game in Her favour to show that husbands should develop the quality of yielding to spouse to make family every happy and auspicious.  Mother came to be known as Mangalambikai and Lord Mangalanathar
